This will be another fragment.
In case you were wondering, I sequestered myself over the weekend. The original plan was to head up to Maine to spend some time with my folks. (I haven’t seen them for several months, and have started to feel a little guilty over not seeing to filial obligations.) The threat of inclement weather and a lack of motivation inspired by my latest cold, however, saw that idea fall through. Instead, I holed up in my apartment and took some time for myself.
Truth be known, the time was sorely needed. Outside demands have been taking up a lot of time and energy of late, and I’ve been hard pressed to keep up with them all. I’ve been veering dangerously close to a renewed fear of life being out of balance.
