What I’m Learning while Recovering from Burnout

A forest of trees coated in ice. The sun is low in the sky and shining a warm glow that is reflecting everywhere and making the trees sparkle.
An ice storm is the perfect metaphor for what my recovery was like. Suddenly everything was stopped and was silent. I felt brittle until I slowly thawed out.
A black and white cat (with no eyes) is sitting on my lap. In the background a second cat is lying on the back of the couch watching me.
Fidget, one of our two tuxedo cats, became my therapy cat and we spent many hours “CoL” (cat on lap).
