Anxiety & pain got to be a bit much, decided some communing with animals was called for. Went to visit with famous duck, bit of a mob scene, Canadian geese, samll children, etc. He did manage to work in a brief consultation, dispensed some sage advice.
Went over to Hampshire Farm Center after, lovable sway-backed donkey, goats all resting quietly in their stalls, visited briefly with some bull calves, went back & sat for a while by sway-backed donkey's pen, crying. Eventually, he & the goats took pity on me & came out to visit.
Feeling a bit less of a wreck, awfully tired, wish I could manage to nap.
