Retrograde is bearing down hard on me this time, more so than usual. Communication everywhere is garbled, no surprise there. It's not just the situation at work, which seems more and more Orwellian with every passing day, but my own internal thinking, reflection, planning and dreaming all seem to be turned upside down. I feel tremendously isolated, beyond what has become customary in the last year. Perhaps this is all just the impact of the study cycle I am in right now, I don't know. Either way, it all ends on Saturday and I'll spend the weekend recovering and celebrating.
