so hard to break these fetters ropes and chains unable to escape this coil shaking with each serpent's kiss splashing in eyes
While I don’t usually offer explanations, I feel one is in order today…
There is “impending and imminent doom” in the weather forecast, except that it might end up being just a dusting of snow. I have been dealing with a lot of angst around the household for the past 24 hrs because, unlike other school districts, ours is planning to go on with business as usual. As I feel is right, but there is much disagreement with dad today, along with hand-wringing.
I’ve been trying to just accept that there are challenges to everyday life and not give them quite so much emotional energy. This is a difficult goal when absolutely everyone else in the household (cats included) feel otherwise. At times, it makes me feel like I’m tied down in a dank cave, with a serpent dripping poison in my face (like a certain figure). Not that I’m quite so clever as that person, but I feel a parallel.
I just want to take each trial as it emerges instead of manufacturing new ones out of nothing substantial. Unfortunately, there is little agreement about the matter around here.
