In Like a Lion....

Well, I finally have time and quiet in order to compose my thoughts, but my thoughts are defiant little ones today.  I have been that way all weekend, not because of work stresses but because of IT.  It has arrived again.  Every year starting mid-February and lasting until April, my allergies kick in and I am ill with not only sinus congestion and an increase in asthma, but also with crazy dreams, restless nights and a brain of full of thoughts that just can't seem to organize themselves into anything resembling  coherence.  If you see me staring off into space, it would probably be best to just quietly tip toe by.  There is no "snapping out of it" until at least April.  I was so grateful when I discovered this pattern, because it used to frighten me when it came round.  About 12 years ago I was going through some old journals when I noticed the same symptoms at the same time of year, so I turned to that time of year in all my old journals and found the same pattern.  At least now I can relax and let it simply be and tweak my supplement and food consumption accordingly.  I do have lots I want to say and can mentally write books in the wee hours of the night, but when I awake, those blogs are forever lost in a mental fog with a twinge of crankiness.  So, I don't write sometimes because I don't want the cranky person....Gentleness is my aspiration, and so, I hold my tongue....for now ;)
