hot water

last night,

i turned up the shower really hot,

turned out all the lights,

and laid down at the bottom of the tub

letting the hot water fall on me.

i stayed there just praying and thinking until the hot water ran out.

i got out feeling calm, resolved, and ready for some change.


  1. This
    song is also very efficient when you don't have a shower near you and that you need to escape from your problem for a few minutes.
    I will end with a sentence that I love : "Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia."

  2. i think i should try that! ;)

  3. i think i should try that! ;)

  4. oh, i love this. very deep. i have faith that you two will make it out of this!

  5. Thank you so much for your recent comment on my "La Promenade"...

    I am glad dat you feel so enthusiastic! You also have a veri original blog and I hope you love in French will never cease!

    Happy learning, bonne chances!


  6. Hot water can be very therapeutic. My favorite thing is a nice hot bath.

  7. i do this sometimes. baths and showers always make me feel so much better, i get my best thinking done in there. i'm an emotional bather, no doubt about that!
    hope everything is well! :)

  8. calm, resolved and ready for some change is a wonderful way to start a new semester. way to go.

  9. ohhh, I love doing that! It's so lovely. Especially when I'm not feeling well... or emotional. So relaxing.

  10. loved this post...

    reminded me of:

    A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.

    -- Eleanor Roosevelt

  11. I like to do that at times too! There is something soothing but yet releasing about it!

  12. Word.

    kinda makes me want to escape this office and go home for the same thing..

    happy weekend :)

  13. YES!
    The tub, the shower, the lake, the ocean...
    all give me solace.
    LOVE to you!

  14. It's a good way to relax.

    Take it one moment at a time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  15. i hope that you are okay! i do some of my best thinking in the shower:)

  16. I love this post....I identify with this post!
    I always say I do my best thinking in the shower. And then I found out that due to the change of the molecular structure of the air we take in while showering, because of the hot water/steam, there is a scientific reason we think more clearly in there. Wild, huh?

    And, I tend to pray quite a bit in the shower....probably due to the fact that I'm thinking more clearly! ;)

    The honesty of this post is really lovely.

    Hooray for change!!

  17. i might just need that tonight. :)

  18. I've been dealing with so much stress and anxiety lately, that sounds like just what I need. I'm glad it brought you some clarity.
