I’ve posted this photo before, but it’s so perfect for the prompt (“stairs”) I can’t resist sharing it again.
I’m sitting here in the middle of the day and I can’t stop yawning. Part of that is because I was socializing a little while ago and that takes it out of me, but it’s mostly because I’m still not feeling 100% yet.
I’m approaching week 7 of this cold, and while I’d love to say it’s essentially over and I’m just getting back to normal, that feels like tempting fate: I’ve thought it was “almost over” for a few weeks already. But I’m down to the occasional cough and blowing my nose from time to time. Overall, I’m feeling pretty good but still fatigued and sleeping a lot.
This has been and continues to be a busy week for me, with something with the potential to be extra tiring happening every day, most of it fun. It all involves socializing or otherwise being “on”: it’s kind of an introvert’s marathon.
I could use a nap.
This photo was taken in a hotel during my last business trip.

the heat and steam seem to reignite the pilot light at the meeting of my thighs
feeling vacant yet reawakened, I ache
