Lost and Found

After coming home today Chris told me I smelled earthy.

Yeah, probably so since I was lying in the Earth reading for about half an hour.

An attack of ants cut my reading and cloud-watching short.

I left the park only to get lost in some deserted backwoods. Every "path" ended up being a dead end.

I could see our house over the hill, but I couldn't find a way to get to it.

But as it is in life, if you just keep walking, eventually you'll find a way out.

And I did.

It was nice to just go out walking and read.

In a weird way, getting lost kind of helped me to clear my mind.

I had to clear out all the mush of the week and just focus on finding a way home.

I came out of the hinterlands feeling refreshed and refocused.

It's been a wonderful holiday week for us and I hope it's a great weekend for all of you.
