Flu and fever

I am sitting at a table in a diner called The Creamery in Palo Alto, California, waiting for my order of scrambled eggs with toast and hash browns. I'm trying to take it easy today, as I came down with the flu yesterday. I'm battling it with a combination of Cold-FX and Extra-Strength Tylenol.

Being sick is a miserable way to be. To all who are healthy: cherish your healthiness! Revel in it, exult in it! Remember it, for it will not always be in your possession.

I simply had to go outside. Staying in my hotel room was getting to be toxic. I believe this is what is called "cabin fever." I pity those who are confined in prisons. Having no change in scenery is a kind of visual toxicity, an imagistic stagnation. It leads to madness in those with weak wills.
