Well.. at least I wasn't in the obituaries this morning
I am on the down hill side of "flu like symptoms". Two days this week I've had to call in at 7:30 and ask if I can come in at 1:00pm, so I can get some extra sleep. My throat is on fire, my head is splitting, and I have no energy. I'm fortunate to have a good boss in my Air Force career. I also called in at the music store today. I really feel like shit.
In my last post I mentioned that I've been in a funk lately. A lot of my regular visitors offered some great encouragement. I want to thank them all. I know this will be a temporary deal.
I stopped at the drum store where my drum instructor (and mentor) works. I told him about the funk I've experencing and my lack of spiritual enlightenment. He gave me some really sage advice. Today has been the first time in weeks I've had a chance to visit with him. Since I've gotten the job at the music store, I always rush home. I used to stop at his drum store every day after work. It was a way for me to unwind after work every day. I miss that now.
One of the blogs I enjoy is addict's. In her recent post, she tells about an experience she had visiting a medium. It is a great post, and got me thinking about my quest for higher knowledge of spirituality that I started a few months ago. Lately I've made no strive what so ever to persue my quest. Therefore, I think some of the funk I'm in is the result of my lack of motivation. The picture above is of some artwork on my back. The Egyption symbols weave a story about life. I still need to get my 3 childrens name put on each point of the ankh, and I would like to get a scarab underneath the ahnk to complete the theme.
I hope to pull out of this rut I'm in and get back to my spiritual quest.
