showering.

there are aspects of life that people can elevate from what would normally be function to something beyond it. Food and drink is the easiest example, a required function to live yet something that can be elevated to a pleasure or a passion.

in the hustle and bustle of life, showering/bathing is also the sort of thing that people can treat merely as function, and most of the time i do too because i'd rather sleep for a little longer or internet a little longer &c than take that time to shower. Every now and again, however, i feel the need to shower more as a ritual, a representation of a larger spiritual cleansing, take the time to nurture my need for feeling truly physically and mentally refreshed.

despite not being able to fall asleep until about 01:30 last night, i woke up this morning around 06:30, and even though i was dead tired and under most circumstances would have been able to fall back asleep until i actually needed to get up, i was in a more mentally chaotic mindset (due to both positive and negative factors) upon waking than normal. i tried a few standard tricks of putting myself back into a state of rest, but nothing worked. three hours later, here i am, more awake but still dead tired, and my mind still in a fog of chaos.

i don't have anywhere pressing that i need to be for two hours, however, so i've decided that today when i shower, it will be a ritual day. remove the dirt from body and mind, polish and nurture the things that are awesome in my life, step out and be naked for a spell so that i can feel the air and the positive aura of my life pull in positive aura of things directly into my skin.

then, i dunno - if it feels like the right time and the right mindset, i may go in and make a hair cutting appointment today. maybe not though. it still makes me mentally apprehensive to think about.
