I've been clinging to my bedside a lot, lately. It's quite unique how perfectly the knees and forearms shape to the angle of a bed; how your heavy head can fall perfectly into your interlaced fingers. A manicure can only lift 'spirits' so much, but an exchange of words, clarification, needs, and gratitude over-top of that manicure can make a world of a difference. I'm taking a needed break from eye-appetizers, for a little while, and turning to intellectual up-lifters'. My soul needs and deserves some soothing.
