Hitting the Wall
Shortly after an event that takes months to put together, one’s energy will hit a wall. This collision is different from the natural exhaustion of the event itself. This gets down to the cellular level… inside the chi. I hit this wall this afternoon at the studio. There were several decent hours of painting today, along with some other varied tasks. Hot tea soothed me after lunch, but in no way did it provide any lift with its dose of caffeine. I considered a short run to try to shake the chi, but that didn’t happen… I took a walk with my wife. Now, I should retire to try to get a little more sleep than usual. “They” say that you really can’t “catch up on sleep.” Even if I believe them, it certainly can’t hurt to sleep a bit extra when the wall strikes.
