I’ve been in a slump lately, stuck in the middle of a transition that is taking far too long, and I’m not able to speed it up by my sheer will, just as my habit of checking email does not deliver awaited news into my inbox no matter how many times I hit refresh.
I lost momentum. I lost it somewhere between sad news, and illness, the oppressive heat, and all the hours I spent on the internet compulsively checking for new house listings.
I looked for a spark this week, the kind that gives you a burst of energy that can bring you back up, overcoming sadness or disappointment or impatience.
I found it. We got good news. I had a good idea, and even if things seem harder than they should be, I simply don’t have time to be down anymore.
I’m going to need a new theme song. It’s either a new theme song or a new hair cut, and the last time I cut a lot of hair I ended up looking like Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing which was not the look I was going for. So a new theme song it is. When I think about this part of the story later, it will be much better if it has a soundtrack.
