Letters to July – Fourteenth


I’m going to try and blog every day during July as part of Letters to July. It’s probably a bad idea.
Dear  July,
I was going to write a really profound letter today, July. About what a good day I had, about how much I love my job, about all the beautiful little snapshots I have in my head – today was a day full of picturesque moments.
But all that happened before I succumbed to a migraine and had to retire to bed. I am now watching Orange is the New Black and eating pasta squelchy with mushroom sauce. Once I’m done with this, I’m going to watch another episode and eat half a block of Whitaker’s Coconut Block. Then I’m going to fall asleep and stay asleep until this headache is gone.
So I guess today will just stay between you and me, July. Even the best days are full of duality: I was happy today and today was beautiful but also I sobbed because of the pain in my temple. Swings and round abouts.
