My bubble burst this afternoon, reality came rushing at me in a surprisingly forceful manner and it took a lot of effort to rebuild the walls I have so proudly built up to protect myself. I took an extended walk around the lake and was confronted with a lot of memories from that location. Actually, the only people who I know read this have done that walk with me. After 40 minutes of walking and a couple hours of reading (Why do men have nipples?- good read about silly science facts) I regained my equilibrium. From now on I need a longer to do list so I don't have time to stop and think about life. That's not supposed to happen until January and then only in a very controlled way. I like control.
In other news, the woman whose print I bought at the art auction gave me another copy of it. That was very nice of her, but I'm not sure what to do with it. If only I had left my Christmas shopping until the last minute! I guess I just have a really early start on next year?
