..my inner sloth...
My recent trip to Seattle had me completely knocked out. I arrived on Thursday evening, and I spent all day yesterday in bed. Then, I slept until noon today, coming in and out of consciousness to register the current program on NPR.
I am a firm believer that our bodies have this mechanism for telling us that we are on the verge of burnout - or at least mine does. All functions just shut down. Walking to the living room is equivalent to scaling a mountain. I also believe that my body's reaction results mostly from mental rather than physical stress. These physical shutdowns are the means by which my strength regenerates without my catching some dreadful cold or flu. So, I just humor myself and go with it.
Today I am finally back up a little. My friend Alley has a concert on the upper west side this evening, but I don't think that I will go. I'm rather interested in indulging my inner sloth.
