I am taking a time-out. You probably already noticed. Or maybe you have been taking a time-out too and not even given me a thought. Which is perfectly as it should be.
Last weekend I bought one of those knock-off spinning face cleaning brushes at the CVS in Memphis.
I love it. I am addicted. I actually wash my face at night.
No more crazy dead-skin red splotches on my face.
This morning someone said I looked rested. Trust me. I was not rested.
A friend told me recently that the body's immune system does it's best work while we are sleeping.
I knew this experientially to be true (I always need a lot of sleep to heal and to progress in labor, ) but I didn't know it was a medical fact.
Today it occurred to me that maybe the soul needs the same sort of rest to heal and recover. The same sort of quiet and stillness; a hibernation.
So I just wanted to say hello, tell you to go buy a spinning face thingy if you have red splotches, and let you know that I will be back. I am just doing a little winter hibernating.
