I've been in one of those phases lately that suck you dry. You've probably been there before too. You wonder how the heck you're going to get everything done that you're supposed to get done. Maybe the college was closed the day you meant to register due to a huge snowstorm. You have to harrass people to let you in the college when they finally re-open, and you're running from building to building to get your instructors' permission in the rain and cold.
And then the car breaks down on the way to your first test and the teacher scolds you in spanish. Maybe you've taken in a very fiesty foster dog who chews anything in sight and drinks your coffee when you're not looking.
Maybe you're finding that you hate chemistry.
It's exhausting, but I know joy still lives out there in the world, waiting to be grabbed....it's just finding the time....oh and a new camera.
