Still Still

Morning!  My back is still playing up but I don't think it's as bad as at the beginning of the week when just shifting my weight in my chair caused me to emit potty mouthed utterances.  I'm still taking painkillers but trying to reduce their amount and frequency.  One of their side effects is that they make me feel nauseous.

The recommended treatment for back pain seems to be getting the mixture of rest and activity just right.  I may have done a little too much yesterday but you live and learn.  I'm also pleased about what I managed to achieve in spite of the physical niggles.  Even though keeping going is absolutely essentially I' notice that I'm pain free  when still.  This, as a metaphor for what happens in my spiritual life, is not lost on me.

  2. I wonder if you could send smiley loving energy to where the pain is on your poorly back x
