St Francis

I've had a headache all weekend and I'm not sure why. I think it might be sinus but it could be stress. Why is my head stopping up now that the rainy season is over and the days are cooling? I keep taking aspirin and sudafed but it's not doing a whole lot of good. It's a one side headache which is a very annoying kind.

It's been a stressful month even though it doesn't feel like it. It doesn't seem like the WTC attack and the ensuing "war" is really affecting my day to day life but I'm sure it is. It's the worst kind of stress because you don't think it's affecting you. It's the lack of resolution that bothers me and I know there won't be any resolution soon, maybe never.

Ok, I read a nature book. I read "Songbirds, Truffles and Wolves" by Gary Paul Nabhan. He took a pilgrimage to Italy and to St Francis to see if he could see find nature there as St Francis found it. He found that St Francis was being used by all sides, as always, but did come to a spiritual resolution for himself. It's an interesting book, but he gets a little whiny at times. What? He thought the peasants lived close to nature and starvation because they liked it? Sometimes nature writers are so out of touch.

Damn. Yahoo, after not that long, is now getting rid of Webrings. That means that all my webrings links will have to be redone. That is just too much to think of right now. It would have been best if Yahoo never took over Webrings cause everyone hates them. They took away the original links and made everyone use their really boring, gray logos.

Ok, so I'm not in a good mood right now. There is that nagging headache in the background and I didn't get a lot of stuff done that I meant to get done this weekend. I even took a nap this afternoon and woke up all sweaty. What is it about naps that I wake up sweaty? I don't do that at night.
