My Brain is Shortcircuiting

Scenes from St. Augustine -- Two of the great houses on San Marco, facing the bay front. I'd love to live in that neighborhood.

My brain is doing weird things. Carol says it's stress. I think I'm just odd. I spent an entire day battling the "I've done nothing with my life, have nothing to show for it" depression, which really isn't me. I spent another few hours obsessing about something that is entirely out of my control. Then last night I had this weird movie-like dream about a possessed house, a dream which featured two of my characters. I never dream about my characters. It was strange and left me all scared, sad and disturbed because their relationship was destroyed by this possessed house and there was nothing I could do about it.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I see the parallels.

Does your brain do weird things when you're under stress? Or is it just me?

HUGS, Linda!!! You haven't really given yourself any downtime this summer, maybe it's that. You wrote, studied, remodeled - amazingly busy!

As for not doing anything with your life, well, I know you know better ;)

Take a day for yourself this week, do nothing but what you WANT to do.

I think that pedicure needs to be this week! Let's do it. I've just looked around and felt like I've accomplished nothing this summer, either, but I've been way too busy . . . We must get ourselves together before school starts back and take some "me" time.

Weird doesn't even begin to describe what my mind puts out there.
