It does seem to be everywhere... I know I'm feeling it. Stress about work, stress about the economy, stress that I'm not living my life to its fullest. Vacations don't help, sleep doesn't help. I want to shake things up, I want to turn left and be pointed at a right angle to reality, and step out for a bit.
Maybe I should read Anansi Boys. It was nicely escapist; the audiobook was well suited for the drive down to DC.
