The saga ends?

Yesterday my oldest asked, "does it feel to you like gravity has somehow gotten lots stronger the past couple days?"
I mumbled some sort of agreement from my prone position on the sofa opposite him. For the past few days, we've been suffering from what we've decided to call the horrible plague. Gravity did indeed feel stronger, as we struggled yesterday to lift even our heads from our pillows.

But today gravity seems to have loosened its grip. While certainly not well, we are upright. That's a start.

  1. You have started on the long climb back to health, congratulations. Stronger gravity pull cracked me up.

  2. At this point, I'm thinking "upright" is a big step in the right direction! :) Glad you're feeling a bit more human. A short but strong post...thanks to Alex and his incredible insight.

  3. Oh my, you've been prone so long, you're beginning to contemplate things like scientists! Really just kidding, but it struck me that even feeling low, you continue to reflect & share such interesting thoughts. Get well soon!

  4. That is the perfect description for the feeling of being flu-ish (or inflicted with the horrible plague)! Clearly, your oldest has a poet's heart.

  5. 2-4-6-8 time for us to levitate. The reference to gravity as a factor in illness is a good one.
