Someone told me I was trying to do too much, I should make sure to look after ourselves (and myself), that An Saol would happen, sooner or later, and there was only so much one could do. Relax, they said.

Relax. Imagine.

What kind of impression was I giving? What did I look like to them?

A nervous wreck, tired, unbalanced, and a bit manic?

Is this all a bit too much?

How do you expect someone in my situation to feel and to be? I’ve never been the most relaxed, laid back, let-it-be kind of person. But what do you do and how do you live in the most extraordinary circumstances?

Relax?
