Feelin’ So Good, I Don’t Care That My Blog Blew Up

Well, Looks Like Typepad blew up last night and a few of my most recent posts are missing. They’ve got a recent back-up running until such time as all their hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of blogs can be republished from the database. I can republish manually, but at the moment, looks like everyone is trying to republish.

But I feel good. I mean: good.

A friend and business colleague in Pittsburgh emailed me this morning after I emailed him yesterday, apologizing for not returning his call of a few days ago:

Just get well, Richard. There is almost no better feeling than feeling good
after you have been feeling bad.

Aint that the truth? Other than the once or twice a year cold, I get sick enough to crawl into bed about once every two years, and it’s normally no longer than a day. This time put me down for four days. No idea what it was, but it was long enough I completely forgot what it was like to feel good.

But I’m back now, and I just really can’t believe how good it feels to feel good.

    Hey, I didn't know you'd been sick. hope you're feeling better.

    That feeling afterward, like the world is your oyster and you can do anything, it's almost worth being sick just to get that.

    I've wondered if that feeling is just relief at whatever it is finally passing, or if the forced rest is actually that recuperative, even if it is not in the best of circumstances.
