MichiKusa {道草を食う}: one Monday

Why do I hate Mondays?

It's not for the usual reason, because of work. All in all I have quite the ideal Monday schedule, a gentle introduction to a hellish repeat of every other past week not unlike dipping your toes in the pool in the morning and allowing yourself to slowing adjust to the icy water. It's only 3 hours of 'classes' plus my morning "open office" time. And I had a really good day on Sunday. Not only was it the first day of 2 glorious weeks of Sumo at 九州場所 - 初日にしてはいい相撲取れた!! - but I got a lot, A LOT done.

Now that makes me suspicious.

Admittedly, I had about two hours when I had to lay down as my left eye was giving me that knife in the back of the eyeball pain again making it impossible to see out of (I'm judging the time by the fact that I had to lay down all through THE BIRDS and the beginning of REAR WINDOW.) , but beyond that ...
So it's not that I was pain-free - I only get that kind of relief when I'm completely, utterly unconscious - but I was mostly just in a level of constant 'discomfort'.
It was almost alarming the amount of desk work/studying I could do.

It always surprises me what a difference it makes on your energy level to not be constantly fighting pain.
And the clarity of mind!!?!
I didn't think that state of mind existed ever before. Naturally it has, but I am so used to walking around in a mostly incoherent fog, that a normal clear thought-processsing is anything but a normal state for me.

And to think, if I'm lucky, I even get to say this 2 or 3 times a MONTH!

Which is why I dread this coming Monday far, faaarrr more then usual.
Sunday was way too homey.

Cheers! (^_-)-☆
