The antibiotic I am taking comes with a laundry list of possible side effects. It also had a lot of rules about when to take it and what you can and can’t take it with. So after I sorted out all the stuff on caution slip, I came to the conclusion that the safest time to take it and know that nothing I had ingested was right before bed. The worst part was the upset stomach that made it hard to go to sleep but once asleep I only woke up about half a dozen times during the night. This morning I wake up feeling like I am hung-over but I know that is not true. A little water and some Motrin along with my morning cup of coffee seem to be doing the trick.
I had some very vivid dreams last night. The last one before Caroline came tapping on the door about 8 (which is just fine since Ariel needs to be at the Hebrew school by 9) was just about to turn into a nightmare. I was part of a costume in a Masquerade that was taking place as part of a convention. The stage was in what looked like a high school auditorium. I was also helping with running the show so I had a short window to put my costume on. I was missing my belt which was very important since it had my sword on it. Also I couldn’t find my gloves. About the point I woke up I remember being glad that the music cue had screwed up in the group before us so I had a little more time to get it together but I still couldn’t find my belt.
I have very vivid dreams. However the costume was such a kicking idea, I might have to do something with it in the future.
Not as much done yesterday as I would have liked but I did get started on the next piece to the puzzle.
Has anyone who reads this ever done the morning pages as instructed in the Artist’s Way and other books by Julia Cameron? I did it once for about a month but never could get further than that. I am wondering if it would be worth it to give that another try. Or if y’all had any suggestions for jump-starting creativity and the artistic drive since mine drive seems to currently be in park.
I am grateful for that which inspires us.
