Hiatus


When the nurse took my blood pressure yesterday, she remarked how low it was. It was 110 over seventy something. That was a surprise to me because in recent weeks it had been higher than it has ever been, 130 over 90. My doctors and therapists all say I overwork myself between the office and my writing. These weeks of hiatus due mostly to illness tell me that they’re right. The question now is how I will behave once I am fully recovered. I must work, but I thought leaving the private sector would allow me more time to write.
