I put make-up on today. The first time in 13 days. And I left the house on my own for several hours. It was a cool, crisp beautiful Autumn day; everyone is now wearing coats. The strong winds made the leaves fall quicker than they would have of their own accord. People’s homes are decorated for Halloween — when did October 31st become so big???
All this would have been going on if I had stayed home but grieving for my lost job is over; it’s time for me to return to the land of the living AND the land of the employed.
