It's hell to park in the work neighborhood today too, and after I finally found a spot it was another 10 minutes or more, limping to the office. It's the bad knee, being badder than it's been in a very long time. I don't know if I'm in a spiritually or otherwise not-physically weakening state making it worse to bear, but I wanted to collapse in tears when I finally got to sit down at my desk.
I'm trying to remember the Buddhist thing about paying attention to the pain. Directing my attention to it, not fighting it. This is good for other sorts of pain too so they say what do I know.
I must remember how this business can suffuse everything. Color my world. And that the odds are very good it won't be this way forever.
