I’ve been feeling under the weather for a few days now. I hate when that happens. Everything goes on hold. Trance is difficult because I can’t breathe properly and thus I get out of practice. Devotionals are shorter. I want to do some exercise – yoga, pilates, belly dance, something – but my body is so not into it. Normally it wouldn’t bother me. Our bodies need to rest during such periods and I should not be guilty feeling. Slightly annoyed, sure, but not guilty. This time, I’m feeling ill right after the New Year. I have goals and ambitions! I need to work on things and here I am coughing and sniffling.
I’m trying to be positive. After all, this is just one of those hurdles I talked about yesterday. There are lessons in this. I can use this time to really develop my tea and neti pot rituals. I could crochet or sew something quietly…
Oh, another positive! I sat in bed this morning and finished Tolkien’s The Two Towers finally. I don’t have the third book yet, so I suppose I can spend more time reading about fly agaric and Celtic reconstructionism… Ok. Yes. I’m being productive and that is good.

Feel better!! And kudos on finishing Two Towers! I read the Hobbit but never made it into the trilogy!
I read The Hobbit a long time ago and really liked it. When I attempted to read Fellowship, I had a difficult time. Now that I’m a bit older, I had an easier time of it. I know many people dislike his incredibly descriptive language and tendency to describe everything’s background, but I’m more used to that after having read so many ancient epics. 😉 Maybe you can try it again one day!
