Doldrums

I've been feeling totally at loose ends for the last couple of days. Sleep disruption is the likely cause. Only the most trivial and monotonous of tasks can hold my attention. Washing dishes has been enjoyable, trying to write has not. Routine is a tame thing, with little relation to thought, which can turn wild and go running off into the brambles. Thus, having nothing to put on the scratches, I leash my thoughts with the washer, the kitchen appliances, and the vacuum cleaner. My house is tidy, but dust swirls in my brain. I need a nap... or an earthquake.
