Right, I’ve had enough of this gruelling entropic grind. This week is going to be better, even if I have to bend the spacetime continuum over my knee and spank it to make it happen. It’s a lovely clarion call to arms, I know, but of course it’s never quite that easy to shake off low moods and disappointments. I may be quite capable of massive acts of self-delusion on occasion but I’m not stupid.
Still, the signs are looking positive. I’ve been able to be a supportive voice for a number of people today – something that’s very difficult on lower ebbs – and had a productive day at work. In large part that has come from saying F**k It to the world and throwing myself into things again. If you’ve not heard of, or read, this amazing little book, then you might find it worth a bit of your time to dip in. I’ve found it very helpful.
We also had a successful D&D session this evening, blending prepared material with fresh insanity and elements plucked from players’ unguarded comments. Secret Agents, check. Adventures on the high seas, check. Missing adventurers, check. Abandoned ruins, check. Unnatural perversions of reality in unexpected places, check. What’s the worst that could happen? They may just find out soon…
So, this week is going to carry on getting better. Today has been a very good start.
