Whoeee, boys and girls, I do believe I've turned a corner. About 10 days ago I had a really really good day full of energy and a zest for living. I thought, "I'm feeling like the old me again!" Then it happened the next day, and the next. I had a few days in there where energy disappeared again, but it came back.
Friday night I went to see a favorite comedian of mine, Marc Maron. I love his east coast, sometimes dark, very honest, Jewishness and the lens he sees the world with. He brought his A game and I laughed so much I almost lost my breath. I had a dynamite seat, stage left, about 5 rows back. I would love to meet him and become friends. I don't imagine that will ever happen, but I'd love it if it did.
The next day I packed up the car and my little Lucy, and headed down to Boulder to have dinner and an overnight with friends. It was a great evening, and B pulled out all the stops on his dinner menu. Much wine was consumed for a change, and then we watched the new Elvis biopic on HBOmax. Well done movie and the acting was superb. Never a fan of Elvis, but this movie was compelling and made me care.
I went to brunch with my friends this morning at a little inn in the mountains. I drive by it when I come to Boulder, and have always wondered what it was like. Now I know. Built in the late 1800s when the area had a gold rush, it has been many things, and now finally, a restaurant and event center.
I arrived home around 3:00 this afternoon, and after unloading the car, took a nap and slept deeply. I was so tired I didn't want to get up to have some dinner. But, as many diabetics know, it's important to eat on schedule to maintain blood sugars, so I forced myself up and had mushroom risotto with some green beans. Yum.
I'm hitting the sack at 9:00 pm and hope to wake up tomorrow with some energy. I have a lot of boxes to unpack. I'll have to figure out where I have room for things (or not). It's a little odd to see my parents clock in my living room. They got it in 1975, and it's been a feature in their living room ever since. I'm glad to have it as it brings back good memories.
So, this return of energy? I know it was a process, but when it really kicked into high gear, if felt as if a switch had been flipped. I looked at the world anew. I still am looking at everything with fresh eyes. It's the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
