It’s AZ, and for my part of the state, unusually hot; we rarely hit 100, up here in the more northern and higher altitude parts of the state, but we have been the past several days. It’s dry heat, though, so bearable when I need to be out.
I learned a technique called “clinical analysis” in nursing school, decades ago; it applies in other areas of life too. It’s a way of looking at a situation and taking your own emotions out of it as much as possible to see the problem. Being human, I can’t do so entirely, none of us can, but many don’t even try. It’s looking at the symptoms as objectively as possible and then seeing how they fit into the models for various “diseases” or problems, to look for a solution.
