Still Sick

Posted on 17 October 2004

I’m still sick. I can’t believe how long this cold is holding on, keeping me from attending meetings, visiting with friends, and working. This morning a friend reminded me of a dream I had last week – a single image of a banner that read “This here carries tears from Marion’s workshop” – and told me that colds are said to be unshed tears.

I am feeling weepy and frustrated. I’d say that I am being forced to slow down, to absorb what has happened in my travels, and to come to the realization that I can’t do everything that I did before and expect to take my writing seriously.

Is it coincidence that I have begun studying Helen Luke and she speaks of the feminine principle and equates it to the “receptive”, the yin of the “I Ching”? Luke describes a woman who “had no time outwardly and no energy inwardly to be still and listen” to the direction she needed to take with her career and so became ill.

As I sit here at my computer, barely able to think a coherent thought, I see the wisdom in slowing down and taking the time to decide what is important to me and what is not. I need to prioritize. I can’t do everything.
