Bridge to Where?

June 5th, 2008

I wonder if Hillary is a Libra because we are both having an awesomely rotten week. I feel like I’ve been sucked into Mercury Retrograde backwards — like being picked up by an enormous Bad Karma tornado-hairball combination. Where it will put me down and in what psychic shape, I can’t predict. I know (because I’ve done my time on Self-Help Drive, USA) that these upheavals and life changes that seem like dead ends are really bridges to…somewhere or other. I just hope it’s not the afterlife, the dentist or corporate-life-in-death. But I’m feeling more like a spatchcocked pigeon in the middle lane than a consciously evolving spirit fresh from a yoga class. I came home tonight and thought about hooking up to my Respirate biofeedback machine, but instead I said, fuck it, I’ll have a glass of wine and 3 Advils. Because sometimes you don’t want to be consciously evolving and dealing with your problems…you just want to watch Jackie Warner bust a move on Workout or watch Free Willy¬†on HBO and cry your eyes out (uh oh…a little too much wine there). As Scarlett said, tomorrow is another day…and I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

    I’m right there with you sister! Really needing to get off the self-improvement super highway, but feeling a little like I got hit by a mack truck while navigating to the off-ramp.
