Because wallowing and stewing are just so DAMN satisfying sometimes…a perspective on sinking into the funk through the eyes of a friend and writer I admire.
I’m sitting at what used to be my friend Ezra’s desk, in our New York office, when I first hear the news. When I learn about the “historic, crippling storm” that is moving into the Tri-State area. I don’t pay much attention initially. I don’t have to fly out today; my flight isn’t canceled; this won’t affect ME. But the buzz builds rapidly throughout the 10thfloor about this massive Nor’Easter, and I start to feel little flutters of anxiety rising in me, bubbling toward the surface like the carbonation coming up the straw in my Diet Coke.
What if I can’t go to yoga tomorrow?
What if I can’t buy my stepfather’s birthday gift?
What if I can’t go to Hoboken to see my godson?
What if I have to miss my friend Sonia’s workshop?
What if my flight IS canceled?
What if I get stuck in NJ?
