Good Day, God!
Ah, our emotions — our feelings — can darken “reality” or lighten it. I suppose that is why folks are urged not to make important decisions after the death of a loved one.
I cannot say I am in darkness, God. But, I am in a Time of Tiredness. I am thankful for it — as without it, my nature would embark on doing what I love best. And what I love best (or close to best) is sharing. So, DRUM ROLL please: I have turned down two opportunities to TALK to folks. Talking LIVE is an adrenaline high. It is very hard for me to resist that sense of enthusiasm flowing through me.
I can hardly believe I said “Not NOW”. I hope they remember to ask me again, later. But, meanwhile, I can share in this quiet blogging way. Sharing without feeding my adrenaline addiction.
So, I am sitting here and feeling relaxed and content. I have finally gotten into the flow of juicing. Today I selected purple cabbage, pineapple, cilantro, basil, collard greens and lemons. I forgot I also had ginger and turmeric. I shall add them to the mix this afternoon. I am feeling as if I might be able to get my body back on the less-is-more track.
And, I have just finished Malcolm Gladwell‘s latest book, David and Goliath. I think Gladwell has done more to add to my collection of Cognitive Maps than any other writer I can think of.
This time my main addition was the idea of the inverted U curve — situations when more makes things better . . . then has no effect . . . and then even more makes things worse. This would apply to punishment, to smaller class size, and probably even to my desire to become more efficient or trimmer. Hmm.
