We have hit peak stress, and I expect to shut down for pretty much the rest of January until this book review which I care too much about is done. The world is overstimulating right now as well, with Art Week pouring in and the influx of commuters now that we’re well into Phase 3. At the same time, I am beginning to prepare for future events. Perhaps I should pull back on those things, and focus on what I’ve earmarked as the most important: writing poems and being here, in time. I need to downsize.
