To brood or not to brood ... is that a question?
I felt sorry for anyone who had to drive around in a car yesterday. The pope-a-thon at the new baseball stadium snarled traffic everywhere. Clients canceled their massages because they knew the heinous experience of trying to get from where they were to where I was would deprive them of any moment of peace they might attain on the massage table.
Though always a bit panicked when clients cancel (since no one pays me when I don't work), I did have the presence of mind to notice that the day was spectacular. Instead of brooding, I took a nice bike ride. Exercise instantly improves a mood.
In fact, a wonderful bike ride on a gorgeous day in a beautiful city can even disrupt a brood. Miraculous!!
