Do you remember watching cartoons when you were young? I was thinking about the ones where the character’s feet were spinning really fast but the top part of their bodies stayed in one place. I’m sort of amazed that someone ever thought of that. I know it sounds sort of silly but think about how often that effect was used and how we really feel that way sometimes. You think that you are running so fast and you still come in last. I have had this dream many times. You are being chased by something or someone and you feel like you are trying to run through water. I hate the feeling that what ever you are afraid of is barreling down on you and you know it’s going to get you.
Today feels insurmountable in that way. I have set out on a journey and yet life is still happening. Nothing is going to stop so that I can sit down with my guitar and write a song. Nothing is even going to slow down but continue at a break neck pace and I am in the pool trying to get away. “I’m not a very strong swimmer” (thank you Martin Short).
Things are over my head today so I have decided to swim to the side for a bit and regroup. Tomorrow is another day whether you like it or not. Right now tomorrow sounds pretty good.
