So hot and suddenly, predictably, August brings a rush of work. Going slowly and patiently, aware that I can't give in to the heat, can't let it get to me.
So, yesterday was five months since the last day in the university job.
Today I catch myself thinking... how I'd like the work to go, how I have fewer headaches, but still way too many, and still have weight to lose. Thinking... this self, these aspirations have been absent in these past few tired and frightened months.
