The past week hasn’t gone the way I’d planned at all. I was looking forward to sharing my “dinner with Dracula” with you (it was really more of an appetizer, but still). I’m just not able to stay ahead of this latest funk.
I’m back in the states, and I’ll be leaving for another long hike in a few days. Hiking is my drug of choice when the normal stuff fails to keep Eddie at bay (Eddie also goes by the far more clinical terms: depression, anxiety and PTSD). This time I’m hiking to Canada. Should be amazing. Fresh air, nature sounds, and plenty of time to regroup and reflect. There will be plenty of fall vistas to appreciate (and possibly a few winter whiteouts since the seasons change earlier up north).
I already miss Monica. I probably won’t miss washing dishes or doing laundry. I will definitely miss following your blogs while I’m prancing through the woods. But it’s time to take my medicine.
I probably won’t have the chance to blog, but I plan to share plenty of pictures of beautiful landscapes marred by my increasingly scruffy mug via Facebook if you’d like to follow along.
Really looking forward to catching up when I return!
P.S. I’ll do my best to respond to comments, and I hope you’ll understand that my tardiness isn’t a reflection of your awesome words of wisdom/encouragement/humor etc.
