Foul Weather

Share

Yesterday I was having a foul weather day inside my head, very stormy and it only got worse when a job I was trying to finish turned into a big can of worms. I suddenly went from being optimistic on finishing in a timely manner to feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to start. As I was sitting at my desk stewing I decided my best course of action would be to go for a walk and shake it off.

So I packed up my music player walked over to Lucky 13 house for some chill out time. I found Dick and Dave sitting in the screen porch discussing planting coconut trees and where to put the new ones, the old trees had to be cut down because of yellow palm disease. Within 10 minutes I was feeling much more relaxed and less stormy in my head, way better than Prozac.

We hung out and snacked on fruit, rearranged coconuts in the yard and went up to the newly built second floor to catch the sunset.

    I would not be to quick to dis Fluoxetine:

    It may also reduce stress in plants which reduces immunity to phytoplasma that kill palms.
