feeling a little blue funk

Have you ever read "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Suess? "You can get so confused that you'll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space. headed, I fear, toward a most useless place. The Waiting Place... ...for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting." I fear I am there right now. Just waiting. But for what? There are things that need to be done. But I don't feel like doing them. I drink coffee in the morning to get me going. but it doesn't seem to get me going as I want to. I'm just in a funk right now. I think I'm just really missing my better half. But Dr. Suess has some encouragement a few pages later: "Somehow you'll escape all that waiting and staying. You'll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing. With banner flip-flapping, once more you'll ride high! Ready for anything under the sky. Ready because you're that kind of a guy!" Thanks, Dr. Suess. I bought this book a few years ago for my children. But I guess there is some wisdom in it for me too. Just keep moving.
