Spring and Winter

I have to admit that this protocol I am on has one great advantage:

Every 14 days it feels like Spring to me.

As you might suspect from my long absences from this blog, this trial has a crazy effect on me. For 14 days (10 days on the R7112 pills and 4 to get them out of my system) I feel miserable and exhausted. But then, suddenly it feels like Spring. Rays of happiness and optimism take over me and I feel like whistling and jumping.

Yes, it is snowing right now. But I can't hear the silence of snow. Do you hear me singing with the birds?

This quote of Anne Bradstreet, the first woman to be published in Colonial America, summarizes that I am trying to say: "If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."

Não te importas de fechar a torneira, querida Elsa, porque fiquei toda molhada....
Nós aqui em Portugal, não precisamos de regar as plantas porque Alguém se encarregou de nos mandar a água suficiente lá do céu...
Por favor, que venha a primavera e "na tua casa" também !

Let the spring begin!
We will wait for the days ahead with anticipation and most of all HOPE.

of course this means the drug is working :) The fact that you posted something on your blog tells me not only are you feeling better, you completed you barn raising on Farmville!!
