I'm home from work because this is day three of what I've been told is a Three-Day Intestinal Virus. Which means I'm still a bit tired and run-down but mostly okay. The first day was major hell (fever and horrible gastric distress) and the second day minor hell. Now, though, I'm well enough to sit at the computer, so figured it was time for a long-overdue blog update.
Today is the Feast of the Epiphany. Because it's a Friday, I wouldn't be celebrating it in church today anyway (Americans tend to observe on the closest Sunday) but I do hope a bit of the spirit of the three Magi (or Wise Men, or Kings) can find its way into my heart and soul. I need to be a seeker again. Find a new road (or two). Get out of my rut and follow my star. But yes, first, I have to finish recuperating. And so this blog entry...
Part of the reason I've been blogging less frequently than I used to is because I really am in a rut. My life has become very small, since moving to Brooklyn with Lady Lucia. I go to work, do my church ministry and...not much else. In Manhattan, I also did theater and socialized with friends and just exlpored the city on my own a lot (nearly always finding interesting subjects for blog entries). This part of Brooklyn is very suburban, though, and doesn't have interesting street life. All the theatrical doings (and all my friends other than Lady Lucia) are in Manhattan. So, as I said, my life has become very "small" and I'm even starting to bore myself. Since I don't want to bore youse, too, I don't write much...
I don't mean this post to be a total kvetch, though. I love Lady Lucia more and more all the time (she has been the most blessed Angel of Mercy during this illness) and at least I have a safe roof over my head, a job and a church community. And two wonderful Siamese-if-you-please. Things could certainly be worse.
Still, this Epiphany finds me without much to say, so I won't meander. I continue to read and respond to the posts by my OS Posse and am, as always, inspired by y'all.
Epiphany blessings and well-wishes,
