I emailed a blog post on Friday, and of course I just assumed that it went through. Well, it didn't. So here is a "re-print":
I'm Going Slightly Mad (Friday, 08/22/08)
One thousand and one yellow daffodils are dancing in front of me. It finally happened!
Ok, not really, but I feel like I'm losing my mind.
I'm taking a week long blog vacation, thru Saturday August 30.
Why? Because this week I don't trust anything that is going to come out of my mouth. I'm thinking crazy thoughts that I don't know if I can trust them. Crazy thoughts like quitting my day job and going back to school. I just found out last night that someone I know was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it's a little too much to think about right now. Half Dome is in 41 days, I'm not ready and I'm afraid I will let that stop me. My bike is gathering dust again, and I can't decide if I care or not. I think I want to pursue taiko as a serious hobby. Wild stuff like that.
It's probably just stress. I have reporting deadlines quickly approaching, and back to back out of town trips.
Grrrrr. I want to go hiking. I need some soothing green trees and ferns and the smell of pine. And some really big mountains thrown in for good measure. I need a mental health day up in Yosemite Valley.
