  1. Yep… agreed. Wish I was in a catatonic (read: dormant) state right now, but instead up and working like a banshee hoping to get tired enough to get back to sleep. Can’t wait to see pics of the geese and her brood, David!

  5. That’s a psychological problem needing a therapist instead of a blog-audience.

  6. I identify with this waaay too much – approach avoidance at its best…finally something Iโ€™m really good at!

  7. There are many reasons for that — more than ever, after the past year — but we have long needed to lobby for a siesta time here in the U.S., perhaps especially in the Northeast. Work is hardly life’s main value (anywhere)!

          • Any chance you could change things up a bit, perhaps reimagine your job to make that a reality, if not full time, perhaps 2-3 days/week? Seems like this past year has been such a blessing to you in some ways, a chance to change the daily narrative and explore new sides of DK. I hate to see you give that up….

          • Hmmmm. We shall see Lori. I suspect I’ll be doing this in my Office at work:

            Here is an example from one of my early lessons, which I did, in some form, for thirty minutes a day for nine months:

            Work through these exercises, practicing one of them for a few minutes each day, either before or after your meditation session.
            1) Stand up and examine the room in which you are working. Turn a full circle, scanning the room. Now sit down, close the eyes, and build the room in imagination. Note where the memory or visualizing power fails. At the end of the exercise briefly re-examine the room and check your accuracy. Note the results in your diary.
            2) Carefully visualize yourself leaving the room in which you are working, going for a short walk you know well, and returning to your room. Note clarity, breaks in concentration, etc., as before.
            3) Go for an imaginary walk; an imaginary companion, human or animal, can accompany you. Always start and finish the walk in the room you use for the exercises. Note the results, etc., as before.4) Build up in imagination a journey from your physical plane home to your ideal room. Start the journey in real surrounds, then gradually make the transition to the imaginary journey by any means you wish. Make the journey to and from the room until it is entirely familiar.

  9. Indeed. I’m afraid that my shifts between the two poles is more clinical, and even more serious at this point in my life. I know that this is not a mental health chat room or page, per se, but since this post really stung me in the ass, I wanted to respond and the act of putting fingers on the keyboard is an act of faith for me these days. When I am in hyperwork mode, there is a often a joyful rhythm to the words, and my sentences are broken into lines of poignancy. But when I’m full of dread, well…then you see lines like these…
    Thanks for posting this note this morning, it reminds me of being in good company.

  12. At peace is the person who heeds the words of famed professional golfer Walter Hagan; “You must take time to smell the flowers along the way.” God in his divine wisdom has provided all in nature to sooth tortured souls. Only those who turn from God seek unnatural alternatives for but a temporary relief. This is why the mental health profession has so grown.
