This morning dawned in a blazing glory of numbness. Truly a blessing. I never thought I’d see the day when I longed for absence of emotion, but that day is here—has been here for awhile. Such relief to not feel anything at the moment. Simply to breath, attempt to pray, drink coffee, feed the pups, shower, shave, throw on clothes that are mostly clean, and lose myself to vampire wars on my iPod. Pretty great. And with that soothing note, I take my next breath.
