Dear Diary: March 1987

Unicomarch211987blogPossibly an over-reaction?

I'm just curious what that strike would look like, exactly?

This is from my first diary, my precious Purple Unico. I can't imagine what my life would be like without my journals. I can think of any point in my life and picture exactly what my journal looked like. When I flip through them, I discover new things, old memories are triggered and I am so thankful to my younger selves for faithfully taking notes in diary after diary. The closest thing to a "calling" as I can imagine, is what I feel when it comes to talking to people about journal writing because journaling, as far as I'm concerned, is mental and emotional alchemy.

SFortune_change_of_plans_1 In case you were wondering if God had a sense of humor ... to the left is the insightful/spiteful scrap of paper in my fortune cookie last Thursday. Below is a pictorial representation of Thursday's drama. I was on a footstool making an intercom announcement at work and then I was lying on the ground in excruciating pain. After a trip to the emergency room and visit to the doctor, I was home with my foot propped up with orders to rest. Right. While resting, I made Dscf2295a few to do lists. That's kind of relaxing. So, I may have fainted. Docs think it was "stress related." As one of them attached the heart monitor, he shared a nice little story about fainting goats. In his anecdote, I am the goat. Super. I think I'll take up yoga again.
