Generally, an existential crisis starts like this.
I've been addressing the information I just received that I have a rubber allergy
(the effect of which has been a severe, blistering rash on my hand).
Nothing snaps a person out of existential crisis mode like a practical matter.
But things may be back to normal on Monday.
Even though it seems I get caught up chasing a million microscopic concerns,
the only thought that stays as any sort of a constant at all,
the thought that is behind all the other thoughts
I've been doing a wobbly job of not over-thinking.
I'm not thinking about it, just aware of it.
But not thinking about it.
Is it possible to be aware, but not over-think?
I think that's the goal...
