This year has felt brutal in places and the last few days/weeks have been pretty intense (that’s not to say there haven’t been some highlights too but it’s been hard to get them to outshine the negative at times). Tomorrow is a new week though and in a month it will be a new year. So tonight as I try to focus on the glimmers of positive in the last week and forgive myself for skipping blogging and getting behind on work in deference to other emergencies, I am hopeful that soon the highlights will outshine the clouds.
This time of year as the winds and seasons change, I always get the urge to travel (or at least make plans to travel). A few months ago, I drove back from a visit out west through the Badlands. And lately, I’ve been fantasizing about being back there with the big sky and meandering roads.
I’ll be posting more pics from this drive soon.
The last few days I’ve been fighting back a cold and also trying to wrangle what seemed like acres of leaves. I will admit to coming up short, the leaves always win (though at least I’m feeling mostly better). And as the month zooms by and the wind picks up, the tress are starting to look pretty bare. How are things with you guys?
