In a Funk

Yes, I've been in a funk this week. It started Sunday and has continued until today when I have been able to cut a small hole in the cloth of fog that has seemed to surround me.

You may have experienced something similar. Was the world moving too fast while you felt like you were slogging through the thickest mire? Have you been in that place where food had no taste, flowers had no smell and everything was black and white and grey...no colors?

That's where I have been. Struggling with Morpheous who kept pulling me under. I have broken free from him and have opened my eyes to find a bit of sunshine. Thanks to Glenda Bonin and Sean Buvala for checking in to wake me with an alarm that sounded of human voices...welcome music to my ears.

Beware the Jabberwok!
