Scarce Smiles and Mental Comfort Food.

“But if one observes, one will see that the body has its own intelligence; it requires a great deal of intelligence to observe the intelligence of the body.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

“This is peculiarly an age in which each of us may, if we do but search diligently, find the literature suited to his mental powers.” ~ P. G. Wodehouse

“An intelligence test sometimes shows a man how smart he would have been not to have taken it.” ~ Lawrence J. Peters

One by one they lit up, white at first, which quickly acquired orange and yellow highlights. Fresh snow up on the high peaks conspired with the sunrise to give me a smile. Smiles have been far too scarce for me, for my tastes; not counting those I get from babies, dogs, cats, and lovely women. The past two weeks have been what some might call weeks from hell. Or the fortnight from hell. Whatever. Yesterday it hit me. I’d been over-amped for nearly two weeks, maybe longer. So yesterday was what I call a down day. The phone’s ringer turned off, a 2.5 hour afternoon nap, and that mental comfort food I always get from watching Star Trek NextGen reruns. It worked, with only a few micro-doses of indica drizzled lightly over my day. I’m not going to go into the coming day. Things to do, people to see, and metaphorically seeing “a man about a horse”. I just wanted to check in here. It would not be hard to just let this blog go, but I don’t want to, so I won’t, can’t, whatever. There’s a day to get to now, but with very little pressure to do this, that, or the other thing. I like that. And I’m not done with that mental comfort food either. It is not necessarily linked to only Star Trek. Onward.

All is well. Goof gloriously.
