Seeking quiet

This morning, I'm taking my coffee stop at 2 Galz Java & Juice rather than the usual Victrola. A couple of reasons: first, I'm having a late start because I'm feeling a little under the weather. Second, I got kind of overwhelmed by the noise and activity at Victrola yesterday. Weird, I know.

The noise is here too, though not as much. People talk so much! Adding the sounds of the city makes it that much harder for me to keep my head straight, but it's the constant talking that I don't deal with very well. Should stay home, I guess, but I like getting out in the morning.

My preferences come from being alone for a long time I suppose. I'm just more comfortable with quiet in the mornings. Even a little conversation is OK, just not as much or as loud. Scares me a little that I get overwhelmed so easily. Suzanne encouraged me to take some time off, so I may work a short day today. I'm in "curl up in a ball" mode right now for no particular reason.
