Overcoming the desire to hide away is the first challenge of the day.
When the peace of last night’s sleep betrays me and I awake again to this world the palpable physical impulse to hide away … in bed …anywhere … is allbut overwhelming; it’s both mentally and physically debilitating.
Right now I’m in work – having stopped on the way for breakfast – and still I am fending this everpresent urge off; it nags at me … I want to curl up under this work desk … to face nothing and no one.
I cling to the grey mundanities and minute by minute don’t curl up and cry. Eventually it will be night again … and sleep will once more be haven for a while.
