I’m learning a lot about endurance lately. As I struggle with health concerns, I often struggle to maintain my focus and control. My attention span seems to be getting shorter, and my memory fails me more often than I want to admit. I know that some of these things I can control, but some aspects are just the effects of time and age.

I pride myself on my memory and my control. Knowing that those things are slowly eroding is not pleasant to admit. I have to face facts, however unpleasant they are.

So, here I am sitting and writing at 0330 on a Saturday morning because my body cannot relax when it is supposed to. I will sleep most of the day in short naps to make up for this. Since it is supposed to rain all day, it won’t upset any plans because we will stay at home.
