Today I was to see my therapist after work but got held up and missed him. He is good and I like to see him. I was disappointed but not shattered as I used to be in the past – a good sign I suppose. Exhausted after a long day at work, I was grateful to sit down with a nice cup of tea and blank out for a little while.
The mind randomly went to a lovely set of ear-rings I saw on a colleague at work today. There was a time when everyday I would change my ear-rings to match my clothes. I have pairs in silver, pearls, wood, coral, shells, leather, beads, gold, glass, ‘kundan’, pewter, garnets, amethyst, lapis-lazuli, crystal, a combination of some of the above and a few others that I don’t know the names of. Some are single as the other of the pair fell off without me noticing. But I still have the one and I keep it for some strange reason. It reminds me of the city I got it from and the story behind it – who was with me, what was the thought behind getting it and other pointless things like that.
For the last 16 months I have worn the same boring tiny ear-studs everyday. It is too much effort to look for a suitable pair. It is a pain if I loose it. Essentially, it is an unnecessary hassle.
I dug up a few pairs and looked at them this evening. May be this weekend I’ll change the ear-studs.
