In recent days I was caught unawares with a little virus that has kicked my proverbial backside with a hacking cough and periodic fevers that leave me achey and miserable. I am thankful to have the flexibility to be able to stay home and keep this all to myself, though this meant missing one of my favorite annual events, the Riley School of Irish Music’s Peace and Merriment concert. But miss it I did, as I’d not wish this cough on anyone.
I am fortunate to have a live in love who makes a really nice soup and who puts up with my rather prickly attitude as a patient.
I’m also thankful for friends who live away who call to check in on me and remind me of my worth as an artist and a human being. (this discussion having nothing to do with feeling sick, but only magnified by such). And so little by little, I get my breath back. Hoping tea and books and rest (and maybe a spot of whisky) will see me playing music again soon. And rocking a more positive attitude.
For today though, I just feel prickly.
