Slow Down

Lesson of the week. Of the last months. 

This week I get a coughing fit whenever I leave the house (cold air, movement) or move at more than snail pace even at home.

So apart from going to the GP or the hospital for x-rays and to the supermarket, I don’t do much. 

I watch the DVDs I on my shelf that I’ve never seen – Darjeeling Limited was not bad. Belle was alright. 

I re-read most of my Jane Austen books… And watch every version of Pride and Prejudice I’ve got… I youtube and facebook and sleep. 

And I try, for now, to not worry about everything else. I don’t see the cough getting better, despite antibiotics. Waiting for the test results of the x-ray. 

I think this is just my body saying what I’ve been feeling for ages – I need to slow down. I need to live better. What I’m doing is not working for me. I’m exhausted.

I have no solutions to the questions this brings up about where I work and where I live. I’ve been searching for answers for a while already, and can’t find any.


I hope God has a few things planned to help me out…

  1. Thanks for your thoughtful work. I took many close-up photos of fall foliage last October and November which reflect some of the same visual elements you are capturing. Do rest and take care of your health.

    Yes. Rest is both the best and the hardest medicine.

    Get well soon!! ❤
