Hooray, winter crud. But at least the love-sickness has passed. I have now been clean from the dark man for about three days now, and feel pretty calm about the same. More for my own comfort than any risk, I've re-blocked him a few places and adopted the attitude from the past two years of avoidance and proper CBT technique in terms of invasive thought spirals.

It continues to be cold, but I continue to be a productive in terms of writing and exercise.

Meanwhile, miso soup is on the burner, the teapot is full, and the cat is cuddled up next to the radiator. Calm day.
