A little less than a happy high
In the silence and darkness

I know the feeling. As my computer's network connection isn't working, I'm sitting here at my roommate's desk using her computer. I keep zoning out and staring at the gross mess on her desk and the photos of her friends and family on the walls. Even if I didn't know her I could tell so much from her computer and desk area. She is a maximalist, everything is done to extremes and all the accessories are purchased.

These things run through my head when I should be working on a Macbeth paper, reading Faulkner, or at least cleaning up my own less messy but still unorganized desk. Or sleeping.

Perhaps because it is easier to get lost in her life and think about her problems rather than mulling over my own?

Oh, and by the way, the chamomile tea is working out splendidly. :)

Easier to mull over other's issues? Isn't that always the way?

I've always been amazed that I am able to see straight to the core of someone's problem and come up with a viable solution, yet am entirely incapable of that clarity of thought for myself.

I'm glad the tea worked for you. It's always been one of my favorite remedies.
