morning light, morning work.
i slept poorly again last night. i found myself in that circular pattern of thought where i'd worry on something, notice myself worrying, ask myself how i could quiet my mind. not find the answer and worry more.
i'm actually better than i was a year ago in that i can at least notice what is going on. i'm working on creating some emotional distance between me and what is bothering me. does that sound implausible? what i mean is that i see that i am not my worries. it's a distinction i'm new to.
i always feel kind of itchy talking like this. like i'm taking myself too seriously. like i should be interviewed for some self-help book, like there's one me talking all psychotherapist and the other me is giving a giant eye roll.
so above is ye olde shack. the morning light inspired me to take some pictures.
i'm doing the usual today- working, eating, walking, drinking too much coffee.
my car doesn't seem to be starting. we'll see how that one plays out.
that's the deal here.
