Honing In

Struck down with a lurg. Dosing up on pain killers for an extremely sore throat.

When you're sick, you hone in on to your immediate circumstances. The present is all you have and even then it's as if you are looking at your surroundings through a haze as your body fights to get well again.

The brain and mind also get caught up in the body's fight to get well. Even a crossword puzzle would require too much effort.

I distantly tap out these words on the keypad as if my brain is wearing woollen gloves.

Sue - Thanks I think I'm beginning to feel better.

Di - Not often I get knocked like this, it's a particularly nasty one. Thanks for compliment re photos. :)

Clocking Out

 I have been neglecting this blog for some months. I think perhaps I should face facts and accept that it is indeed time to retire this blog...
