One of the things I find more and more necessary in my (early) dotage is down time. No matter how much I want to keep going, I'm catching on that I have to just stop sometimes, and be. Even if it's just for a little while.
That's what I've been up to after returning from too much travel, emotion and weather over the last two weeks. I made it exactly a third of a mile through my planned 3m run on Tuesday before just giving over to my inner walker and strolling home, and didn't even suit up this morning. Slept 10 hours two nights in a row, and worked only 5 hours yesterday. And just like a little avatar, I feel my life points returning. Tonight is knitting on Tangled Yoke Sleeve #2 with Stewart and Colbert, and to bed.
