Sunday Morning Silence

I am only writing because I feel I should. I haven't felt much like blogging; it's not that I don't like it but rather that I just haven't felt like putting that much time and effort into it, haven't felt like writing anything remotely creative at all. I don't feel up to trying to string together beautiful sentences that lead to some profound truth. Right now I would rather read beautiful sentences that lead to some profound truth rather than write them. So I will just keep on with the random thoughts, and perhaps at some point down the road something creative will emerge. And it's not just that, I also am more in the mood to talk rather than meet up with a friend for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, whatever, and talk.

I love days like today, when there is nothing at all on my schedule, no where that I have to be, nothing urgent that needs to be done, when I can stay in bed as long as I want, especially today, when it is snowing at the end of March.

I slept right through Earth Hour last night. You might think that is a good thing, but I fell asleep with three lights on in my bedroom, the overhead light and two nightstand lights. I think even the hallway light was on. I don't know what happened. I had been out and about earlier in the day, met my friend Nick for breakfast at 8 a.m., went to my son's hockey game in Orland Park, met Deisy at Barnes and Noble. Then the weather turned downright brutal, bonechilling wind, icy rain. I decided that all I wanted to do was go home and climb into my bed and spend the afternoon reading. I didn't read much. I fell asleep. That was about 3:30 p.m. or so, and I didn't wake up until about 10 p.m. Completely missed out on Earth Hour. I read for a couple of hours then and went back to bed, this time with the lights out.

I bought Deepak Chopra's Perfect Health yesterday. It's all about eating according to your physical makeup. I have come to the conclusion that I am a Vata, and perhaps even an out-of-balance Vata, not sure exactly what that means yet. I'll write more about it when I figure it out.

I think I will go back to bed now and read. Wake me up when the warm weather gets here.
