I didn’t watch the inauguration
I did help set up streaming video in our atrium and two classrooms, and my boss sent out instructions for how people could watch in their offices. But I am exhausted and today I just tried to keep up and not be grumpy; my head is full of the noise of pain.
Life goes on in myriad ways even as history is made. last night I was in too much pain to sleep and drugs weren’t helping. I tossed and dozed fitfully until about 4 when my cat plastered himself against my chest and began to purr. I went to sleep until 6 when i was awakened by a pain dream.
Now the intertubes are full of insightful, beautifully-written posts by my favorite bloggers, but I can’t make sense out of them. I marked them for later attention in myu rss feed and am off to do some cardio and shower. Our new president is at the helm and I can hear the ship creak as it begins to change direction. It’s a good sound.
