A River of Stones: Day 10


The aches and the chills attacked me today. The head throbs as I re-read the paragraph for the tenth time at least: “. . . neurotransmitters that have been implicated most often . . . noreprinephrine, seratonin, and to a lesser extent, dopamine. . . . found in large concentrations in the limbic system . . . etc. etc. etc. etc.”  Ugh. Turn to the meds. . . . Ugh. Is all of this necessary? My body, mind and soul longs for peace and quiet, butterflies and flowers, a gently rippling brook under a large willow tree with its long tendrils dipping and dancing in the water. Or, in lieu of that, I want to crawl under the blankets and hide from the world. Can’t do the reading for now. Don’t want the meds, the vitamins, whatever, either. Mindful meditation and relaxation, yes. That means I’m headed to bed. Sigh. Yes, that’s the ticket!

  1. Feel better, Cecelia! 😀

    We had such lovely weather today. I spent most of the day outside. By the lagoon, under a palm tree . . . rather than by a babbling brook tickling a weeping willow. But still nice.

  2. oh poor Cecelia..I shall catch the first plane out of Sofia and come to look after you!!
    Please get well soon..I do not like to think of you feeling so ill.
    Wrap up warm and take the medicine, sleep well and then you will feel better.

    I am sending my love, thoughts and caring hugs to you..(((***)))

  3. So sorry that your not feeling well Cecelia. I hope it’s a short-lived illness, and you’re back to normal very soon.
    Even though your not feeling well, your photography and prose are still great. You’re one talented lady!
