A layer of cloud, a drop in temperature, a threat of rain. A gray, cold Monday. Now a gray, cold Tuesday. After a gloriously sunny weekend, this weather means staying in rather than going out, turning on the fire instead of being warmed and woken by the sun.
Staying in means pacing about the place, back and forth between two overcrowded rooms, looking for the motivation and focus I need to be getting on with. The day’s tasks involve a lot of deskwork. Messages to write, papers to read. Sitting and concentrating instead of moving about. Should get out and move around for 15, 20, 60 minutes. Much easier when it’s sunny. Instead of wrestling with this fog of uncertainty and indirection.
