I started to come down with a cold Thursday afternoon. I thought at first it might be allergies until I started to feel achy. I dragged myself into work on Friday, but by noon I couldn’t take it anymore, so I went home. I’m about 80% now. My nose is still a bit runny. I HATE being sick. It is so inconvenient. I hate being sick on weekends.

[Poetry] aims…at the reformation of the poet, as prayer does. In the grand cases—as in our century, Yeats and Eliot—it enables the poet gradually, again and again, to become almost another man; but something of the sort happens, on a small scale, a freeing, with the creation of every real poem.

Hope you're feeling better. Being sick is no fun, especially when it's so nice outside.

I hate being sick too... Lately, everything I eat gives me terrible stomach pain and I can't really explain why. :(

I hope you're getting better now.
