closure

For those following my blog, the two missing in the Delaware River were recovered, though not alive. Although I wish they could have met a kinder fate, I hope that their families can find some peace by having their bodies returned to them.

The restlessness I was feeling about this incident has subsided since the two were found. It was not the most ideal end to this tragedy, but I am glad that the families and friends can grieve with a sense of closure. And, to be self-centered, I am thankful that I won’t have to pass by the water and feel the unresolved sadness I felt the days before the two were found. Life is now allowed to go on, although it will not be that easy for some…

I don’t really have much of a choice in the matter, especially not in the upcoming weeks. July is shaping up to be a rather hectic month. Last week brought lots of out-of-town visitors and this week is taking us out of town–I leave for a work trip in Providence on Wednesday and then D will be meeting me for a weekend in Boston. I’m looking forward to our mini-trip. I haven’t been to Boston since I was 16 and looking at college with my parents while wearing polyester dresses and argyle tights. And were it not for Emerson’s dismal financial aid office losing my information not once, but twice, I might have ended up in that fair, freezing city… what a different life I could be leading now. But how could I survive without Woobs or the buns (who all currently smell like pickles, thanks to D buying them dill…)?

I’m also looking forward to stopping in Salem while up in Boston. I’ve never been, but I’ve been really wanting to check it out for the past couple of years. I schedule a visit with a psychic that my friend saw there last year and swore by. We’ll see how that goes for me…

I’ve been a little frustrated because I’ve had to break my yoga routine in order to accommodate my crazy work schedule and guests. I’m debating whether or not I can make it to the flow class tomorrow, but I still haven’t even packed for my trip, nor do I have a suit (and might need to purchase one…). I guess we’ll see how things go tomorrow. I don’t want to totally get out of the routine of things and it’s been over a week since I’ve been to a class. Arggh. Next week will be better though, but I fear what it will be like to go back after slacking for 2 weeks…

Tonight was interesting. We went and saw Laurie Anderson in concert with my parents. To add to the ever-evolving enigma of my father, he is a huge Anderson fan and loves her experimental music, artistic expression, and downright quirky ways. The show was at the World Cafe Live, the right kind of venue for the crowd and we were able to get table seats and enjoy dinner before/during the show. Overall the experience was… interesting, but it was good to see my dad so excited. We stuck around in the hopes that she might come out for photos after the show, but the roadie and the merch guy said no dice, so begrudgingly, we made our way back home.

And now I think it’s time for bed. Even though I passed out (thanks to Benadryl) super early last night (like, 8:30 early), I woke up extremely groggy and exhausted. And a little freaked out. I was having super bizarre dreams and experienced what felt like constant deep sleep. I had trouble pulling myself out of it and a couple times I could tell I was talking in my sleep and was able to wake myself enough to recognize this, but could not fully awaken/stop talking. It was bizarre, to say the least.

So now I hope sleep finds me without the aid of drugs. Fingers crossed…

’til next time.
