Taking a break.
What with That Meeting, and substitute teaching ~ a dubious enterprise if ever there was one ~ and the almost-onset of Thanksgiving which is quickly followed by Advent (holiday seasons being, you know, not fun), and planning for a Blue Christmas service, and teaching a Sunday morning class, and the realization that my life has just undergone a Big Shift, in case it hadn't already, and, and, and . . .
every joint in my body hurts, very literally.
Time to step back for a few days. I'm not going to blog or email or play on FB. I might read online, but that's it.
Mostly I'm going to inhale silence.
Carry on, and I'll be back in a few days.
