|06:37 pm - Restorative practices|
I am dizzy and sinus-sore with allergies (the pollen doth rain down upon the land. Also, smoke from wildfires! Also, drought-dust!). I am slightly weary and weepy for no reason. I am slightly muscle-sore for very good reason, to wit, a hella-tough fitness class yesterday in which our lovely instructor
tortured made us do many, many lunges, some with weights.
I need some restorative practices.
One, of course, will be a slow, quiet yoga session, in which I gently, gently twist and stretch away the aches.
Two will be a moment or two of silence in a room as it darkens through twilight.
Three will be listening to one song, To Be Determined Later. The song will need to be melancholy in a good way, or baroque and ordered in a better.
Four will be thinking about words, melancholy in a good way, baroque and ordered in a better. Say, for instance, these from Christopher Fry's The Lady's Not for Burning:
Rest in the riddle, rest; why not? This evening
Is a ridiculous wisp of down
Blowing in the air as disconsolately as dust.
May you find your own restorative practices, whatever you need, in the next day or two.

Wishes you a respite soon.
Rain is in the forecast for... [squints] eight days from now. La la! ;-)
[hugs and cheers and happy London thoughts]
I adore The Lady's Not for Burning!
Good luck with the allergies...
It's such a wonderful play -- and I heard Christopher Fry talk about it at a NT platform, a year or two before he passed away...
[hugs and good thoughts]
::hands you allergy meds and tea::
A wonderful combination indeed! Thank you, Gwynne. :-)
I wish you very restorative words!
Thank you for the wish, and all good thoughts sent back to you! :-)
I hope you soon feel much, much better.
I so love The Lady's Not For Burning! The conversation where Jennet and Thomas talk about love...what poetry!

I've started a reread of The Lady's Not for Burning -- it's delicious, isn't it? :-))
Hugs, joy, peace wished for you.
Oy on the allergies, I feel you so much.
We will be strong! [delicate sneeze]
Water and sinus meds -- evening cocktail of (v.v. sleepy and sneezy) champions! ;-)
Hugs, Rainkatt, and more popcorn!

Sending virtual steaming tea in the hope of soothing the sinuses. Many hugs.
Tea! Perfect! [sips gratefully]
[sends thanks, hugs, and good cheer]
*exhausted hugs* Restorative sounds good. :-)
[hugs and restorative thoughts sent to you across the pond] May it be a better Thursday, A!
Oh, fitness! Guess it's worth it ...
Know what else is restorative? Lovely picture postcards in the mail. ::hugs::
We persevere, H_P. In so, so many ways. ;-)
But hurrah for you, and glad it arrived, and hugs! Happy Wednesday-into-Thursday!
