I'm emerging from the self-involved world of the ill.
It is a rare thing indeed when I don't turn my computer on in the morning, but there were days when I never pushed the button. The brain was entirely occupied with my condition.
Today, this blustery raining cold day, I feel better.
Which leads me to my Thursday's Thinks. Surprisingly, I am marginally able to think again.
I believe our health is our most valuable asset. We only realize this after coming out of a period of illness and we always quickly forget it once we are well. Not being entirely well yet, I am still in the vivid awareness mode.
Minnesota has gone head first into fall. Overnight. Because, well ...... this is Minnesota.
Our elected representatives are busily pushing us under the bus. If I can set aside my horror and anger, there is an interesting and very visible thing unrolling before our dazed eyes. Out in the open, without any pretense, we are seeing the effects of money in our political process. Our system of governance is so thoroughly corrupted by the influence of corporate money as to render it almost useless. This is the first time in my lifetime that the process has been so openly displayed to the public. I hope you are watching.
Since I have had no energy or interest I have been planted in a recliner watching HGTV. I reduced my satellite service to the basic level, so my choices are greatly limited and HGTV became my good friend. So I wonder, why are all of the home improvement shows filmed in Canada? And why are Canadians so nice? I mean really, one family had been so ripped off by their contractor that if the improvement show had not decided to help them, they would have faced bankruptcy. The husband, upon learning how bad it all was, sad in an even, measured tone I'm livid. In America the person would have had so many bleeps as to render the statement,.... a bleeping tirade. I want to live in Canada.
I think I will take advantage of the cold fall day and try to do some domestic deeds. It's been awhile and it would, I think, make me feel better. I may change my mind when I actually decide to start, but it seems like a great idea at this time.
This is all my still slightly addled brain has to offer up. It has not been exercised for sometime and needs some stretching and flexing before it's ready for more than a short sprint.
Enjoy the day and your health good people.
