What a difference a vacation can make. I took a week off to come home, catch up on sleep ond soak my feet in the ocean water. Woke up this morning ready to return to North Adams MA and finish those last 600 miles. I really miss the wilderness with its quiet and serenity. I’m very fortunate to have that in my life right now and don’t want to squander the enjoyment obsessing on mosquitoes, gnats and hungry bears; Oh yes and heat, sweat, and sticky. No, I’m going back to savor all that is quiet, all that is precious. So what shook me out of the doldrums? What was my epiphany? An hour and a half commute down Rt 128. I’d rather be waltzing with bears!
