Six Word Saturday


Screaming migraine derails my book discussion.

Once a month, I’m meeting with an interfaith group to discuss a chapter of a book about two mystic masters, Ibn Al-Arabi and Meister Eckhart. Today was our meeting to discuss chapter three and we are just beginning to really get into the “meat” of the masters’ thought. But I awoke with a screaming migraine at 4:30 a.m. I thought perhaps if I caught the migraine early enough I’d be able to make the group discussion. But that was not to be. I’m feeling better but I’ve had to take so much medication that it is best not to drive half way across town to get to the venue. So I have to miss the discussion group and wait until next month. And I have to learn to be patient with the migraine and with myself.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
