Life is cycles. I believe that. The key is to not wish you were at another point in the cycle...but instead try to suck what you can from the part of the cycle you're currently in. Since certain parts of the cycle are clearly more fun than others, it's not always easy. It's an exercise in re-focusing. For example, I've written more this week than normal. I should embrace those creative impulses, rather than be frustrated that I have no outlet for the intimacy impulses that I'm fixated on. They'll surely be met at another point in the ongoing cycle. As Ram Daas said, "BE HERE NOW."
