Out of Sorts

I'm not sure why but I've been out of sorts recently. I could blame mercury in retrograde (I have). But the reason is irrelevant.

There are moments like this sunset that jolt me out of stagnancy, out of general stuck-ness. Visible landmarks in my otherwise flat-feeling week. 

I easily become stuck in a loop in my head, repeating the same refrains and traveling down habitual mental pathways. These are the reminders that snap me out of it. Or back into it.  I am grateful for these moments - a gentle nudge to keep my eyes on the world around me. It's a beautiful place.
