I feel like I have been untying a particularly tedious knot. I have been pulling and teasing and twisting to no avail. The knot is wet because I attempted to get some leverage on a particularly nasty tangle. This had made the untying even more difficult. But, wait! I think I may have untwisted something crucial. Is this the first knot. I hope. I hope that I can begin to unravel some problems I have been working on with plodding frustration for a while.
I must remember that there is always a stage of any kind of work professional or personal where exertion seems meaningless. It always require a special kind of wisdom to know when one should just lay down the entire knotty mess and when you should keep struggling a long. You might be working towards the solution....or you might be making the problem terribly worse.
