A Change in the Mental Weather

Today was a good day, all the better since it came on the heels of an extremely challenging month. Something has shifted in the weight on my mind, making me feel more light on my existential feet. The arrival of the Monsoon has certainly helped to improve my mood, but there are other factors in this change. Seeing the excellent Public Enemies this afternoon was a great pleasure, for example. Also, I had a great time bowling earlier this week, when I notched my second-highest score ever. It's not a very good score, I realize, but personally significant since my other scores in that range all came when I had been bowling regularly for months.
