Life here on the marsh is pretty mellow these days. Now that Spring has been around for several weeks, the temperatures are much warmer, and the humidity is much thicker. I have been in need of a walk, but over the last couple of weeks my Rheumatoid Arthritis has been attacking my knees, especially my right one. I visited the doctor this past Wednesday, and he upped my meds. Today my knee feels considerably better, but still 'off' enough that I'm treating it gently. Now it's primarily my hands and wrists. They bother me just enough to be annoying. It has been months (and months) since I was able to do any kind of drawing. My children's book is collecting dust bunnies. Typing has been proving to be doable, so the novel I have been simmering on can now start to pour out onto the page. If I didn't engage in some form of creative productivity, I would probably wither up and blow away. I keep hoping that my RA will decide to go into remission. Knocking wood.

I have felt like Sisyphus, rolling the ball up the hill just to have it roll back down. Actually, I wouldn't get the ball all the way up every time before I had to jump out of the way. I am just going to ignore the ball, and I think in time it will disappear. Starting my book is the first step.
