Fever back, a bit lower than two days ago, 99.2°, but still not “normal.” I knew I was feverish before I inserted the glass tube in my mouth. Not because I feel hot, but because I feel off. Very off. Any elevation in temperature throws my entire biosystem out of whack. Just that: a tiny change in my “temperature,” and all plans scratched, all pleasures foregone. No taiji workshop this weekend. Can’t even take puppy Shadow for his daily walk. Will have to rely on others again today. Interesting.
The parallels between my own strange, dizzying malaise, and that of the planet as it heats are unmistakable.
