hello, it’s me again

I’m still here in Portugal, and it’s been, quite frankly, a bit of a difficult week for me. I won’t get into all of it, but suffice to say that I’ve felt less capable than normal, mentally and emotionally.

Also the weather these last few days has been absurdly windy, gusts up to 60mph! So not much outdoors time has been happening. Which is a shame, but alas.

The co-incidence of those two things this week has been unfortunate because it’s one thing if you feel mentally burnt out and can day, “Well heck, I’m not getting anything done this afternoon, I’ll just go out and sit in the sun and read a book; maybe even have a little drink.” That’s still a good life, and often a bit of time in another space can be helpful for whatever mental block ails.

But when you’re stuck inside in the same place you’re experiencing struggle, it has a way of seeping through the cracks in the walls and embedding itself into you.
