Of course it’s going to rain tomorrow.
The idea of flying isn’t terrifying enough for me; oh, no, I had to have a monsoon rolling into town when I take off into the sky.
“Saturday will be a good day to stay in bed,” the meteorologist on NY1 said yesterday.
If only, pal, if only.
I’m taking a third run at visiting my brother and his family in Colorado, the last two attempts having been scrubbed due to illness and hideous weather.
I’m hoping the third time will really be a charm, but the pre-travel agita is gnawing at me something fierce.
I’m worried about the flight, about the drive to the airport. I’m worried I’ll forget something or that there’ll be something wrong with my plane ticket.
I’m worried about things that I can’t even name.
My mind is on total recall, dredging up all the mistakes and missteps I made in the last 20 years.
It’s amazing to see how this twisted mechanism automatically springs into action whenever I’m stressed out.
The trick is recognizing this destructive behavior and redirecting the energy for good instead of insanity.
I don’t like change; it’s really that simple. I’m uncomfortable with changing my routine even it’s for something good, even if the routine is driving me to distraction.
I saw a young woman emerging from the subway the other day with a t-shirt reading “Disrupt All Things.” It sounds like one of those sayings that’s easier to recite than it is to actually put into motion.
I went to mass at Trinity Church today and after the service I asked Rev. Mark to give me a blessing for my travels.
God love him, he actually put his hand on my beautiful bald head and made the sign of the Cross over me.
It was so comforting I was able to relax for a little while.
I have be to up early tomorrow so I’ll be going to bed soon and I’ll try to get some sleep.
In the morning, I’ll get up, take my bags and Rev. Mark’s blessing, and head off into the clouds.
My blog posting and blog reading will be spotty over the next few weeks. Take care, blog on, and I’ll catch up with you all very soon.
Disrupt all things…
