I always thought that there was only one direction you go in at any given time. You know, if something really bad happened, then you got over it and there was only one way to go -- up. A wonderful 45° line leading away from the x and y axes, up and out of feeling bad. But life's not like that. Trite as it sounds, it's two steps forward and one step back. It's the round peaks and valleys of a sine curve. Up for a bit then down for a bit. And I'm a bit down.
Can't quite pin down why. A number of things all weighing on my mind at the same time. The kinds of things that if they happened individually, I'd be able to swat them away like mosquitoes, but all together they're too heavy to move. I wish I had something pithy or funny to say today, but I don't. I'm thinking this mood will pass soon on its own. If not, I guess there's always tequila.
