HBH 191

The body wears out:
Stomach, kidneys, liver, brain
- It all ages, fails.

I have been sick as a dog for the last week or two. Perhaps it is just cumulative exhaustion, after a string of World Cup-related late nights unfortunately coincided with an especially stressful spell at work. Perhaps it has a psychosomatic component, as I slide into massive depression after a week with no sunlight. Or perhaps it's just that I'm now entering the second half of my forties, and I've been living like a rock'n'roller since my mid-teens.

It may be time to check into a monastery for some serious detox. It may be time to make a will. Or it may just be time to leave China....
