Daily Grind

Waking after 9 am and sleeping only 13 hours later, I’m struck by all the grinding ground up in today:
  1. I ground myself out of bed
  2. by grinding my teeth
  3. then ground through 6 hours of work
  4. while my video game characters ground levels in the back-ground.
  5. Despite skipping my daily meditation, I still felt grounded.
After days like today, I even smell like the ground.
