I've awakened with a horrified awareness of just how behind i am at work -- this is much like the horror that triggered overwhelm and depression last week. I hope to bypass paralysis this time.

I may rush into the office early, just to get started.

Yesterday i declared a little email bankruptcy. I do this fairly often, it seems, arbitrarily taking a bunch of messages i have left in my inbox for reply and just filing them all in my archive. Everything a month old and older is now off my to-reply-to list. I've purged a bunch of "ticklers" from my notebook. While i still feel overwhelmed, it is somewhat relieving to have numbers of lurking things (some quite pleasurable: i like corresponding with those i care about, i enjoy much of my meeting work) down.

I imagine the email bankruptcy helps. Because if it's waited a month for response, it's clearly not critically important.

I hope that your steps toward sanity help make life a little less overwhelming this week.

I read your post about what you are going through, too. I breathe with you, holding us and everyone in the Light that knows that we have the time and energy to do what we need to do, and trust that the way forward will be made visible for us all.

We can joke about how many Quakers it takes to change a lightbulb (which is also how *long* it takes), but holding that practice out to daily life seems like a ideal to point towards.
