This morning I struggled to keep my eyes open as I drove my son to school. No more searing heat, Santa Ana winds, and fire. May gloom is here. We need the coolness. We need rain. Unfortunately, when the sun hides, I find it difficult to stay awake. When we moved to Eugene, I had to set an alarm to pick my son up from school. Remaining awake and alert when driving was a daily struggle in the damp and cloudy Northwest. Here in Southern California, I have a better time of it, but today I struggle.


  1. Thanks again for your support, Phil!

  2. I find a great deal of comfort in the phrase “this too shall pass” – I am thankful to be home after going to the girls’ annual Open House at their elementary. Bushed is exactly how I feel! 🙂 hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for us both!

  3. Thanks, Dyane! I’m bushed! No energy. But this, too, will pass.

  4. I know this feeling all too well, Kitt. Thinking of you and I wish you a good night’s sleep!

  5. Thank you so much. Yes, awake now. Hopefully, I can sleep tonight.

  6. Stay with it, and you will be ok, best Phil.
