Today is a heavy day. Most days are heavy, but she doesn’t usually feel them. Most days, there is something to lighten the load, brighten the outlook. Something to make the unbearable bearable. Most days. Not this day. This day the lightening and brightening only serve to emphasize the weight of it, making it by contrast, seem heavier than ever. Today is not like most days. Today is a heavy day. Tomorrow she will be lighter.
