The Arkanssouri Blog.: This is new.

This is new.

Usually I don't get depressed in the summer. I usually encounter that particular demon in the bleak days and interminable nights of winter.

But yesterday and today a big ol' steamroller of depression have pancaked me all over the tarmac.

I think it may be related to a kink in my back that developed yesterday morning which kept me from doing a full swim workout. This Spring & summer I've been at the pool six days a week and I think my body was expecting a mid-day shot of endorphins which it didn't get. That the previous day was Sunday, the day I don't swim, compounded the problem.

So I trudged through yesterday and hoped the sweet, dark oblivion of sleep would hit my reset button and things would be better this morning. But it was not the comfortable slumber I fell into but a fitful, dreamless episode from which I awoke less rested and more depressed than when I started.

And the kink's still there.

Get well soon, Mister Man! And don't suck in so much chlorinated water that you wake up with a sore "froat" as I did.

I'm off to swim and do working-class Englishman things in my new hat, which I've thoroughly cleaned-perhaps I'll ask my new, 6'2" twentysomething lady friend at Dillon's if she'd like a root in the boot, though given her size it might end in a "Crying Game" moment or perhaps like that song, "Lola," by The Kinks.

Take care,
R Man, I
