I hear the pitter patter of rain on my roof. I hear the cars whooshing by on the wet street. They are lulling me to sleep. ⁣ ⁣ I see the vague shadow of the Ridge shrouded in a thick, grey mist. I miss the sun. ⁣ ⁣ I feel the chill of the air, even as I lie nestled under blankets. Its painful penetration going deep into my bones. ⁣ ⁣ I, too, feel shrouded in a fog. I am tired. I am slow. ⁣ ⁣ There is much to be done. ⁣ ⁣ Life is relentless. The to-do list continues to grow. Time waits for no one. ⁣ ⁣ But those decisions are out of my grasp now. This body of mine is calling the shots. ⁣ ⁣ And it's last call. Time to shut down. ⁣ ⁣ I don't want to. There are still many hours left in the day. ⁣ ⁣ But again, it's not my call. ⁣ ⁣ It's time to succumb. ⁣ ⁣ So, now we rest.
