Yes, today pain is the victor. No sleep last night, and now I can’t rest or read or concentrate or do things around the house. No playing the harp or the lute or writing by hand or keyboarding for long. Even listening to music isn’t helping. Nor my failsafe: a soak in a hot tub. 😦

I canceled a long-awaited get-together with my SCA buddy Halle Snyder. We had planned to make a bag for my lap harp to give it some protection when I carry it to gigs. The materials have long been purchased; it was just a matter of getting our busy schedules in sync. Which was today. Except for the pain.

No more typing now. It just hurts too damn much.

I’m hoping that tomorrow I will be the victor in this daily struggle! ❤
