Sun and Sea–together at last!
Spouse and I decided to take a quick trip to the coast for the last remaining days of my vacation.
While here (Depot Bay), I have been reading your blogs and thinking quite furiously about THE WORD OF THE YEAR. Which I hadn’t given much thought to until I realized that EVERYONE WAS DOING IT and I want to eat at the cool kids’ table so I’m doing it to.
So I gave it quite a bit of thought and decided it should be something that was missing from my life before I quit drinking:
I disappeared for several years and not just physically (patio hideout). I was checked the fuck out for a long time. I have no idea how my life operated itself while I was drinking because, to be completely honest, I just don’t remember that much of the last 4 years. I’m AMAZED that anything got done.
So this year, I’m working on my presence- being in the moment and listening and participating and just feeling ALIVE.
If you’re not already completely sick of pictures of trees and ocean, I’ll be posting this weekend’s pictures on a new The Rain In The Trees blog post and maybe you’ll want to check it out.
