Spinning a bit

At the end of a whirlwind week, where I’ve rushed from meeting to meeting and spent hours and hours concentrating on every spoken word, every hint of body language and nuance, and noted every action point….. I bend down to find something in the footwell of my car and I find myself momentarily at sea. I pause a moment, use my eyes properly, and note that I’m completely still. And yet, there’s a distinct feeling of movement, that nauseating feeling of spiralling  with centrifugal force on a roundabout in the playground. I close my eyes. Breathe. And say and do nothing. I stand up. I press on. But after all this time, I find myself momentarily vulnerable again. It turns out I’m still spinning after all.
