Mountains deal

I have a wheezing sound coming from my lungs and if I take a deep breath I start coughing. I blame the “Performance Review” season. Why? Because my supervisor has kids. And last week he was out with a cold … pretty bad one in fact. Then two days ago we had my performance review. And now … chest cold symptoms. Time to call in sick. This is the problem with society … other people. I want to be out in my backyard. Alone. With no one else around.

I wonder how the mountains kick a cold. When clouds congest their rocky cliffs and summits. The winds suggest they are coughing and one realizes they have a cold. And indeed … it is cold out.

Well, most likely they do what we do. Wait it out. Eventually the offending moister and storms subside and the remnants flow to the sea. The sun comes out and spring begins again. We all notice it and go to visit them … to see how they faired.

And they are still there, no matter what. Through stormy weather and sunshine. Always there. Just like I try to be … just have to break free from society.
