Some people have expressed their worry because I’ve not been posting as much as usual and wonder if I’m alright. I’ve also been grumpy and have said I might just close the blogs down. But there’s nothing to worry about, I’m alright – it just seems that February is determined to be a rather hectic month and I’m feeling a bit flapped. I’ve been going to bed later than usual because of social affairs and have had early morning appointments .. which means that some mornings I have just the time necessary to fulfill my self-set obligations of writing a haiku for “No Five-Seven-Five”‘s NaHaiWriMo and my personal One Month of Haiga. I’m a morning person, and if I don’t write the first couple of hours in the morning I risk not writing at all.
I’m overcoming my nicotine drug habit, but one of the side-effects (which is thankfully wearing off) is a certain lack of concentration. So as I count one-month and one week cigarette free today, a few of the symptoms of underneath craving still make themselves felt. But by giving up caffeine and keeping a close watch on my diet, I’ve at least avoided other problems like insomnia and gaining weight. Usually people take one step at a time … they stop smoking then worry about losing weight. That didn’t seem like a wise solution for me – I prefer to workout the symptoms all at once.
Anyway … not to worry. I’m fine and all I need to do is find a way of focusing while relaxing. I hope to do some recouping this weekend and I certainly hope that March will have be calmer in the mornings, che sarà sarà!
Hope you’re all doing fine too!
Ciao for now, Bastet
