There are some days when even the simple things feel hard. Spanish words don't come out of my mouth right and communication is impossible, I can't decide what to wear, think or answer mails coherently. It's the kind of day when I just want to curl up in a rocker in a sunny corner and read a book all day long. But these days usually don't afford such respite; like today's freezing cold winds, clouds threatening rain, and a funeral to go to out of town with all the social responsibilities attached instead of curling up into this ball like a bit of human lichen. Ever like this for you?
