~ ~ ~ time out ~ ~ ~

Flatwoods Plum blooming in side yard

so i can finally talk.
my throat's been sore 
my voice gravely
from coughing too much.

it takes a lot for me to actually go to the doctor.

but after trying all my usual natural healing remedies...
and nothing seemed to be getting rid of this congestion...
my throat was getting sorer
my ribs felt mega-bruised!

one of nature's curly-q's

i gave in.

diagnosed - bronchitis.

sent home with antibiotics, an inhaler, cough suppressants
and the suggestion to use a vaporizer at night & get some rest.

two weeks later.
still coughing.  but better. 
throat no longer scratchy & ribs don't pain me when breathing!
minimal wheezing.
slowly easing back into work, living on cough drops during the day.

i'm taking time off...from blog.

“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.” 
~ Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

i feel a weight on my shoulders.
a trapped kind of feeling.  
like a slave to the internet at times.
i need
get up. get out. feel the sun.
watch the flowers grow. smell them.
spy on the bugs & birds...all the little critters!

listen. take pictures. create more. 
so many trails to wander...trees & moons to sit under...
books to read.

of course i won't be gone forever.
just a hiatus.
time for my body...

“I give thanks for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, 
and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, 
which is infinite, 
which is yes.” 
~E.E. Cummings

i'll still be wandering out here now & then,
and will visit all the places i love.

take care.
be safe.
