Much Needed Elevation - or - Getting Outta Town
It's been a busy summer so far and before it is over and the sun starts to set by four o'clock and the winds start carrying a little vendetta against warm weather, I need to take some time and get out of this city. I am headed into the woods and I am bringing my boots and a tent. I am headed to a pond named after a guy named Joe. I am headed to lush mountain ranges and campfires full of lushes. I am headed to where you can see more stars than people. I am going back to my home for a week and I couldn't be happier about it. If this is the only reward I get for working so hard this summer, it is all worth it. I wish all of you a peaceful and restful August. Next time I say hello, I will say hello from a mountain top. I wish you could hear me.
