Wow, what a long and tiring day! I only worked on two locations for my job today, one of which was extremely difficult since I had to find gas and electrical lines 200 feet around an intersection. The total amount of lines came in at 20, one short of the number of years I have lived.
When I got home I found out my friend had an equally long day, through the miscommunication that occurs when two tired people try to figure things out. It was a good learning experience. After we got that out of the way we cooked pasta and ate it along with bread. I showered and was happy my nose didn’t bleed in the shower like it did yesterday, without stopping, due to the dryness and dehydration (I don’t drink much during the day so that I don’t have to use the bathroom often).
Today I also hit my head twice really hard on the corner of a metal box I had been kneeling under, as I was getting up. What a pain! By the second time I was enraged with having been struck in the head so hard again, by my own doing. I learned not to lean under boxes with my head, I’ll forget by the time I’m done kneeling to pull back before raising my head. Speaking of, I have a headache I didn’t address all day because I didn’t want to have to think about it. That would hurt and worry me. The second time I hit my head I clenched my teeth in both pain and anger, and I could feel it killing additional brain cells, but I did my best to have an intention of healing for my head and remember that the pain was nothing compared to the damage others’ have experienced.
After dinner I completed some work, and then I also spoke with my friend who is visiting soon, as I read more of their yoga project. I accidentally read more than 25% today, I read 50% of their project, which I wasn’t meaning to do because I wanted to savor the writings for as long as I could.
Now I’m tired and ready to rest. I wonder how my friend is able to read my mind so easily and how we have never-ending connections to make.
To be continued…
