Slow down, I want to get off!
Do you ever feel anxious for no good reason? Oh good, I'm not the only one, then. I can't quite put my finger on it, but some days I feel like I'm on that Crazy Train running off its tracks into the wild unknown, way too fast and completely unbalanced. Making lists helps, throwing things away and sending the rest to Goodwill does too, but underneath the tidy notes and bulging garbage bags there is still a note of uncertainty - well, that's not really accurate - more like blind panic, really - and suddenly I'm not driving the Crazy Train anymore, I'm watching as it hurtles down the tunnel coming straight at me a million miles a minute. At the moment I'm self-medicating with coral nail polish and a funky asymmetrical haircut. It seems to be working.
