Morning Thoughts

(Ohiopyle Falls. July 2006)

I was in the mood to look at a waterfall this morning so I went back through my photos from the summer and came up with this. We’ve had enough rain lately that water shouldn’t interest me. I can’t explain it. I just wanted to look at one.

M the Elder and I haven’t been hiking in a long while. I think that fact may be partially responsible for this down in the dumps feeling I’ve had lately. The constant pain, of course, doesn’t help matters. Still, it helps to get outside and enjoy nature once in a while. Perhaps if we have some decent weather on Friday I’ll coerce M the Elder to go for a hike with me.

The long-awaited MRI takes place on Thursday morning. On the one hand I hope they don’t find anything because, of course, I don’t want anything serious to be wrong. On the other, I hope they find something that’s easily fixable because I’m getting worn down with this constant pain. The past few months of pain have certainly given me a better understanding of some of the pharmacy customers. Not just more sympathy, but a genuine empathy.

I have four more days left at work (two this week and two next week). I didn’t think I’d be sad to leave. Yesterday a lot of the regulars stopped by. I’ve been in that pharmacy for almost six years and it’s the customers/patients I’ll miss the most.

I’m running late this morning. I’d better get moving.

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there. ~Monica Baldwin

    Love that photo of Ohiopyle. It reminds me of Great Falls in Maryland, near where I grew up. Good luck on the MRI. Can I ask what’s going on??

    I love that quote at the end. 🙂
    I hope they find something that’s easily fixable too. I’ll keep everything crossed for you.
    I was thinking about your post where you wrote about how you’re always thinking of how to present your experiences in writing. Maybe you shouldn’t let it bother you too much – it’s the writer in you. I wish I did more of that.

    The falls are beautiful…I’m assuming they are in Ohio—where are they located?
