Having revelled in the glorious freshness of blue skies, sunshine and snow, I find myself now feeling a little jaded. The snow has turned to grey slush and the sky is heavy and grey. I came home from work today feeling exhausted for no good reason and took myself to bed.
I am hoping that tonight will bring more snow and I can spend tomorrow playing with my boys and running. There is something just wonderful about running in the snow - something reviving and liberating. In a way its like running in the rain... it doesn't matter how wet or splashed with mud one becomes, in fact the more the merrier. Like when I was a child and had no responsibilities. The snow makes me feel happy... its the slush that I don't really like.
I dreamt last night that I was being chased by a grizzly bear and then looked in the mirror ( in my dream ) to discover I had alopecia. I think I must be worried about things. Work is pretty wearing at the moment - the constant necessity to be calm and patient can be a bit much after a while. I think that's why I enjoyed letting go on Tuesday and flying through the snow like a crazy woman. Sometimes you need to let yourself go, let yourself be free.
Yes. Being in control all the time is not always a good thing.But it is a necessity. I am glad that I have this blog to write on. This is my indoor running. My indoor snow under a blue sky...
