All Out of Sorts

Not a helluva lot to post today. I am feeling emotionally all out of sorts. I feel like curling up and hiding away the whole day. I would probably sleep if I were to do that. I feel sad, angry, and hopeless. About what, you say? I wish I knew. I also wish I knew how to make the emotions dissipate.

For what it is worth, smile. That seems to help me (check it up in the literature—recent studies with bo-tox are interesting), and listen to your inner music. A couple of years ago I realized I was humming songs about losing love and chose instead to sing, "blue skies, smiling at me."

You probably also know that Phil 4 verse about thinking about all that is lovely, good and stuff. Pretty good advice.

Now I'm bouncing to "blue skies."

BTW, I don't know about your drinking habits, but as you lose weight and get older you are hit by a double whammy. This might be reflected the day after. Wild guess and not a wagging finger. Just practical zoology.

I know what you feel hopeless about, the bigger picture and the future. Or it may be something closer to home but only you can do something about that.

But there is little you can do about the bigger picture other than let it run it's course so try to get in a little camping and boating.

Or some activity that you enjoy doing.

Do what you enjoy doing, fuck everything else.

BULL! I think you know exactly what you're angry're just not ready to say it out loud.........the emotions won't dissipate until you can be honest.
You're a good guy, Professor. Deal with your stuff and have some peace.
