Low and Down

Not feeling in a great mood emotionally this morning.  Not really sure why.  I did run my five miles.  But, I had no enthusiasm or joy in it.  I am going to work to lecture on some “big” thoughts as well, but I do not really care.  In one class I need to talk and work through the properties of how proteins shape cell membrane function in terms of physiology.  In my other course, I need to talk about the origins of language referencing the the array of work looking at the neuroscience and neuroanatomy that controls the development of bird song.  Yawn.

Truth-be-told, I would rather be curled up in bed, listening to NPR, drinking a big ‘ole coffee, smoking my pipe, and reading a detective novel.

But, such is life.  During my run I kept hearing in my mind Tevye, From “Fiddler on the Roof” singing “If I Were a Rich Man”.

Yes, Tevye had his own ideas of what he would do if he didn't have to work all day. I think the dead of winter brings ideas of curling up in bed all day. When I crawl out of bed these days, I find myself thinking about how long it will be until I can crawl back in again.

I am sure that the time of year has something to do with. It was Blue Monday this week.

I think I read somewhere that January 24-ish is the most depressing day of the year. I think that's probably accurate. Hang in there, Spring will return.
