Alright, so, it's been a nice day. I woke up early this morning to get to my appointment. I schedule most of my appointments in the morning because that is the best time logistically, for scheduling far out and openings and availability and for traffic. I was tired this morning and it was a pt appointment I had scheduled back in late June and I needed it. I had to decide but knew it would be for the better if I got myself together, got my "courage" together. Even in small situations like this. My long time therapist was, as always, understanding and supportive and so I got great insight into my body situation and things moving forward on all my physical activities. I was feeling energetic so decided to go to the institutional libraries to do some research. Things were still not systematic, but I made so many discoveries that I decided I needed to get home and get my supplies. Fully loaded scholar's backpack again and so my systematic efforts began as I spoke of. I spent the afternoon and early eve doin' it and there's more to be done. Many fine lovely ladies of this younger generation, too. I feel like this scholarship has refreshed me, in my non-scholastic realms: socially and mojo and I feel like I have an extra bout of strength and refreshment from which to better tackle all the sundry untidy challenges elsewhere, obligations and that sort of thing. My appetite for food, my social feelings and mojo and enthusiasm and my muscles feel refreshed from scholarship. I think I will call it a day for now and attend to other things, seeing if I can put in some work tomorrow. This weekend and next, I have family, social and business matters to attend to in a large neighboring city.
I even got some sunbathing done yesterday. It was the midwest's only blue sky day in ages! California (and the West megaregion) has them in such abundance. I was sure to take advantage of it and I have a place to sunbathe and swim (outdoor) so that's good news! And swimming has done my body mostly a load of good. It was lovely but I could only do so much sunbathing at a time. Slathered in sunscreen, flipping over every 5-10 minutes. The afternoon that day yesterday had hours but I was only there briefly. Some kids and their babysitter, with some linkages to business associate/co-worker long time of the family, were playing in the pool and their innocent exuberance plus the sunbathing soothed my weary soul, soul-wearied of the adulthood-rational-naivete of the unquestioning, vicious, bureaucratic sheephood of our peoples. The playfulness and exploration and community totally lost in fake bs adulthood landscapes. The young ones were busting out their English, Irish and Scottish accents, exploring their milieu and heritage of course, which was fitting for my own concurrent engagements, of course.
