I started coming down with a cough/cold thing that is going around on Wednesday and despite my best efforts and a full arsenal of resistance — Wellness Formula, Immunity Tea, raw garlic, and rest — I am fully sick today. Sigh. The worst part is that Betsey Beckman and I had a wonderful retreat day planned for tomorrow on Mary Magdalene. Since hacking and sneezing my way through the day doesn't sound very pleasant for the participants or me, we are postponing it until Saturday, February 21st and I will be spending the weekend in bed practicing the necesary humility of listening to my body. Lots of rest, tea, and soup to come. And snuggling with Tune.
Come back Monday for the next Poetry Party and if you feel so inclined, I'd love you to send some healing energy my way!
