Short and Bittersweet


Good morning! It's Friday and I hope you're getting ready to enjoy your weekend. Today is a bittersweet day for me as my week of vacation is nearing its end. I've had a really great time, and I've done & seen many cool things this week that it will be hard to go back to the grind next week. 

As it typical for a week spent away from normal life, it's given me time to reflect on many things. Long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, and scenic drives through the forest have really got me thinking. Discovery has come my way as well, revealing things ignored and things hidden. It's been eye-opening to say the least.

So, what does this mean for me? I'm not sure, to be honest. Often, I make hasty decisions -- as humans are wont to do -- but this time I want to take time to really think things through. It's not a race, but rather a journey, and I want to make the best of that journey, no matter how rocky the path may be.

Am I speaking in riddles today? Kinda maybe. You know me though, my blog is an insight to me. More than an view into my writing life, it's a small window into my whole world, and it allows me a place to write out my thoughts and feelings. That's what writers do, you know, put it all out there in the written (or, in this case, typed) word.

I won't be putting up my usual Saturday post tomorrow as we'll be packing up and heading for a one-night stay in the northern part of the state. You never know though, I might post something this weekend yet. Until then, enjoy this gorgeous weather, and live life with a little adventure. There's only one life for us to live, so make the most of it.
