investing in loss

Mercury is apparently in retrograde. I spent yesterday weeping. To find a better location than my bedroom for my own private sad movie, I went to English Bay and perseverated on a log while I tried to practise things I have taught in class: invest in loss, let go of hope (and fear), reflect, move on. Came home, put away the opera and listened to happy fiddle music. Then I discovered that I was bleeding. So all that weeping was in fact, really, the sound of my uterus walls doing what it does every month.
