I slept until 10:30am today. I really needed the rest, apparently. Now I feel energized to deep clean eveywhere as my activity of choice. Rest makes a big difference. Eating right, sleeping well, being happy; these are quality of life issues. I am lucky to be pain free; mentally and physically. And I do mean luck. The genes that I carry have served me well. Dad's vibrant resilience, mom's artistic nature all have brought me a wealth of well-being. My upbringing, not ideal, must have shaped me into this coping, never unbroken entity that allows me to change.
