jet-lag is stealing all my late night time. i become so tired pretty early in the evening and it wipes me out for most of the night, as long as i can stay up. and then i wake up pretty early, which is nice to have some more time in the morning--but i am really not used to that. i don't know what to do with time while the sun is still low. i much prefer the night, especially when it's a matter of getting my alone time to figure out what all is going on within me. i don't have a good grip on it now though. who knew that would be a symptom of jet-lag? and who knew it would take this long to adjust? i think my body is just mad that i've made another change to adjust to so quickly after the last one. ugh.
i think we have our non-physical jet-lag sometimes too. and it seems as if mine are corresponding a little right now.
but beneath all of that is a reality that i feel within me. i can't quite bring it up and out in its fullness though it seems--but at times it seeps to the brim and almost pours out. this is an unfamiliar feeling for me. it's been some time. i don't quite know what to do with it either. this joy thing. especially when it's not really connected to any particular thing or event. nope. just a restoration within.
well i suppose that's enough general stream of consciousness for this blog entry. i'll have some substantial reflections on my trip sometime soon. i promise.
on another note: here are a couple of concerts i am a little interested in going to. anyone want to go? let me know!
