This morning, the day before my birthday, I woke up at 6:35am. Not atypical of me, by the way. I went downstairs, made coffee, and drank a red bull. Then, I decided to garden for two hours. Well, gardening is a strong yet gentle term. I did yard work. I sweat and filled up ten bags of twigs, bark, and more. I felt good. That was the old me.
I used to wake up so early and at work by 7:30am and get going. I would accomplish so much by 11:00 am that I could probably quit for the day. I am still highly productive in the morning if I can get motivated. Admittedly, it’s hard to be so motivated when you have to answer 101 emails. Yet, I still manage to be very productive. I’m both proud and annoyed at myself.
Now, I have become productive at 11pm. I clean, clean, and clean some more after midnight. I feel, at times, like a pod person. I ask myself, who is thos cleaning the dishes, the floor, and doing laundry. Is this me? Is this my beautiful house? Ah, now I’m singing Once in a Lifetime by Talking Heads.
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
