A day of hooky spent trying to regain the fragile equilibrium that was mangled by stupidity yesterday afternoon. I realize that this long weekend was not enough to create a stable platform for individual recovery. The raking light of this harsh truth throws into sharp relief the long patterns of days that approach in late June into July unbroken by vacation or holidays. What am I to do then?? I cannot imagine now how I will get through them in one piece if am still coping with the same intolerable situation, a job that has become an insatiable, omnivorous monster.
