Allergies and Moonlight

I woke up before dawn this morning, made myself a cup of green tea, and sat on the porch steps.  I would like to say it was to enjoy the quiet peace before dawn awakens the world. That I took deep breaths of the pre-morning air and was inspired by all the possibilities that would be revealed by the coming sun.

Unfortunately, that was not the case.  Did I enjoy gazing at the mostly round moon floating in the slowly lightening sky?  Oh yes.  Did I scribble down some notes on how the clouds looked as they tried to mask the moonlight?  You betcha.  However, that was not the reason I got up so early.

I have allergies. I don’t know what is blooming or why it hates me but something out there is really kicking me in the sinuses.  My head weighs three times it’s normal amount, my eyes are itchy, my nose is runny…you get the idea.  I have taken antihistamines but I am still miserable.  Thinking takes too much effort.

I want to write.  I want to take my notes from this morning and turn them into an opening for a new story.  But my brain coughs a congested laugh at me every time I try, then rolls over and goes back to sleep.  *frustrated sigh*

Once upon a time there was a woman who was a writer. She was either cursed or blessed from birth to be so and there was much debate on which it was. One day a very discouraging (and not very original) person told her not to give up her day job. The woman smiled and said that was a wonderful idea. Following the unwittingly clever advice of her critic, the woman found a job working nights, which left her days free to write. Even better, the night job had an unusual schedule which packed two weeks worth of work into one, so the writer was able to have every other week off to sit on her front porch, daydream, and of course write. However, working at night and writing during the day left little time for sleep, so the poor writer occasionally went a little mad, but she decided it was an acceptable price to pay to be able to continue following her curse-blessing. Also she likes tea. :)

  1. I am so sorry about your allergies kickin your backside. My children’s father had severe allergies and my heart just went out to him. He was just so miserable. I think that’s why I now have multiple boxes of open kleenex all over my house now. I never grew up using kleenex and I was asking myself the other day why I always have so much kleenex around. I think you answered my question. Thanks!
