    I’m so sorry you are so tired, but I understand you above all in this period of the year. It’s stifling heat and I have just switched on air conditioned and fan and I’m thinking that in Europe should be hard work all year with this climate… the way,why don’t you take a rest?
    Napping is seen as some kind of laziness or something associated with old people, but it isn’t true, after that you feeling better and you are more productive. A short rest is the best way to combat tiredness.
    It’s not the end of the world!
    Take care of yourself!
    A hug Ely

  • Writing is work sometimes. We can’t make people envy us all the time.

    Ditto, my friend. I was paid to compose a retirement tribute to a colleague who – how shall we say – had a “checkered” past. There was much in the ammunition box, so my job wasn’t as difficult as some. I submitted the work to those who had requested it, and it was quickly praised. (Usually, the laughing out loud is enough for me. The rest of the ‘compliments’ are generally bland.) So, as the festivities were about to begin, the director was chuckling feverishly as he read my tribute. He then looked over at me, smiling, and said, “There’s no way you’re going to read this in front of all these people. It would undoubtedly offend someone, and I like you too much to fire you over something like this.”

    Yeah… writing today was a bitch.

    Get some rest. Sometimes it’s the best thing you can do for yourself and your work. 🙂
