we're off to a great start

Today was a very, very bad day.
I'm desperately hoping that this is one of those 'bad dress rehearsal makes for an excellent opening night' things, because otherwise, you and I are going to have some serious problems, 2007. 
When I woke up this morning, I had no idea I was going to have such a monumental day.  When I woke up, I thought I was going to work, writing a motion, seeing some clients, having lunch, returning phone calls, and then coming home.  But an opportunity came up - I didn't even have to seek it out.  It was offered.  So I may be going to a different office.  My professional life was never the problem, although it's stressful - my problem was always my personal life.  But this change I think will be related to making positive changes in my personal life (it will cut one hour off my commute each way - that's 2 more hours a day I will have freed up) but the consequences of making the change could also be disastrous.  It's not certain that this change will happen.  Now I just have to wait and see where my life is taking me next.
I may not be getting out of bed tomorrow.

Archaic Torso of Apollo

We cannot know his legendary head
with eyes like ripening fruit. And yet his torso
is still suffused with brilliance from inside,
like a lamp, in which his gaze, now turned to low,

gleams in all its power. Otherwise
the curved breast could not dazzle you so, nor could
a smile run through the placid hips and thighs
to that dark center where procreation flared.

Otherwise this stone would seem defaced
beneath the translucent cascade of the shoulders
and would not glisten like a wild beast’s fur:

would not, from all the borders of itself,
burst like a star: for here there is no place
that does not see you. You must change your life.

Rainer Maria Rilke
