It sounds like you could use a stiff drink.
Do your best to smile through gritted teeth and avoid that little voice in your head repeating " Crush, Kill, Destroy " !
Hope your day gets better ... 😎

Thank You. But you provide something I am all most incapable of. Comfort. Reassurance.
You have the role of the Grand Matriarch, you are kind, where I can, at the best be the person who dives in to rescue.
You all ways make people feel loved

While I was lurking in the bushes, I saw this crow staring riiiiiight at me.
Unsure if bad omen.
Deeper into the forest
The Magister does travel
Swift through the darkness
Soft footsteps; harsh gravel
The path, it does stop
The shadows, they beckon
Hesitation, just one step
Hesitation, less than a second
With silence overwhelming
The Magister does traverse
She harbours no fear
'tis simply another universe
Distinct in pure quiet
A flutter is heard in the trees
A bird of blackest shadow
There is no wind; no breeze
It stares at the Magister
Its eyes are all one can see
Predatory is its glare
It has been an eternity
It hops from each branch
Its hunger does grow
Malevolent glee; dark whimsy
'tis but a crow
The Magister treks onward
Unconcerned by simple bird
The crow calls to others hidden
Foolish human; another interred
(Actually, we went to the park today and I captured this spiffy photo while my son and Dave were playing. Was hoping to get some rainbow lorikeet photos, but am happy with this staring crow)
