on the horns of a dilemma

woke up with a headache like my head against a board
twice as cloudy as i'd been the night before
and i went in seeking clarity

feeling quite low this morning. seems odd to speak of manic defenses in someone as much in love with lying down as i am; nevertheless.

the dilemma is this: if i stay in the moment, i don't suffer; suffering comes from leaning forward, or back. but without looking forward or back (without suffering?), how do i change? how do i grow?

i'd say you *are* suffering, insofar as you're not perfectly content with your current situation. you can drown out the discontent with tivo and intarwub, but picking a place you'd rather be and pointing your feet in that direction is the way toward real contentment. imho. ymmv. etc.
