Sometimes you get into a bad mood, or you just don't feel right for whatever reason. This can go on for weeks. Days come and go and things seem harder than they should, and you just don't like it. Then one day the clouds blow away and it's like a fairy touched you wth the tip of her finger and changed your whole perspective in just a moment.
Sometimes this happens at the end of a long slog, sometimes it's just a few days of a blue mood. I'm old enough to have gone through a few blue moods. I know, and have always known, that "things will get better" is a truism that you can count on. I suppose eventually it runs out, but generally speaking, things do get better.
A couple of friends of mine say you just have to have faith, not in a religious sense, but faith nonetheless; even to the extent that you just have to tell yourself that things will get better when if you were realistic about the situation, things would look bad indeed, maybe bad enough to be discouraging.
I was feeling down lately. I didn't feel like myself. I feel better now, right out of the blue. Things are, surprisingly swiftly, right with the world.
And now I promised I would gossip about some people I know. I could say a lot of things. On reflection maybe it's best if I just close with; people have greatly varying personalities, especially in situations where that is allowed or even celebrated. If you are depending on each other you had better find a way to accomodate each other, to allow the other to celebrate, cooperate, and contemplate in a way that allows them to do the same for you. Then you have to insist they do the same for you.
P.S. I really like the music that Kate found for Miracle Worker. Thanks Kate.
