Rising beyond zombiehood

I am back from a week-long affair with the cold virus. It’s good to be back because for the entire week of being half zombie and half delirious I thought I had temporarily lost a sense of self. And there were moments I actually did. But that’s a story in itself I will write at other time.

Today I am well enough to take the boys out for some fresh air because the weather is relatively warmer; it’s in the 30s and not single digit like it was last week.
