As I'd promised my neighbour, I took her DVD back to the library. That was a simple, easy gift! Later, when I was walking, I came across a couple taking pictures, and I took a few of the two of them together with the harbour in the background.
This latter one was significant because at the time, I was in a deep, deep funk. I wasn't really in the mood to do anything except ruminate - and giving this gift lifted me out of it (a bit). It put my focus on other people (which is the point, right?)
The funk was unrelated to the grumpiness of the past few days, which lifted overnight (thank goodness). There was a direct trigger, and although it took me most of the day to work through it, I'm on the mend now... I think. I still feel a bit disoriented, but my head is above water again.
Thank you for your kind words and support. This community means so much to me.
Hope you all had good Thursdays. Cheers!
