Almost makes me giddy
The colors in my neck of the woods almost make me giddy. The mountains were quite beautiful this weekend but past the peak color. We're just hitting peak in the central part of the state and it's enough to make me drunk with the sheer audacitiy of it all. There is so much that I can't make sense of and I'm beyond trying. What I can do is try to enjoy what is available that doesn't require a lot of analysis. I made it to my second water class yesterday which was fun although tiring. I think I'll go for a walk today before I do anything else. Fortunately I'm in a slow spell with work which is nice since I was quite busy for the past few months. I ended up working most weekends for several months. It's nice to be able to work from home but the price I pay is that I feel obligated to work weekends when it gets busy to make up for the slower spells when I have the luxury of being home. It was especially nice to go out of town last weekend because I had been working a lot of extra hours until recently. My life is so easy in comparison to so many people's lives. I am in awe of the people on the MPIP who keep working while doing Interferon and other treatments. The mother's with young children who are fighting so hard. The teenagers and young chidren who are undergoing tough treatments. It's sobering. On to the day and the blast of color that will greet me as I head out the door.
