Fall is coming, bringing with it wistfulness and backwards glances as you wonder where the time went, where its going, and what could have been. I admire the yellowing foliage but feel a bit verklempt because it is a harbinger of the leafless winter to come.
I'm not feeling particularly cheerful today. All is well in the places that count but today I'm nursing a broken heart. Intellectually I know it will be okay and its just a mountain-sized bump in my road, but right now, at this moment I feel like a tree without leaves. I'm not ready to talk about it yet but someday soon, I will.
Sometimes I wonder: I don't watch TV as much as I once did but I'm online more than ever. Did I just trade one diversion for another? While I can justify using the internet as the pursuit of knowledge, connections with others, and a creative outlet, the truth is, despite its benefits the internet can also create a great deal of mental clutter- and I really need some clarity right now.
So for a little while, I'm going off the grid. I'm hoping a few weeks offline will be what I need to nurse my wounds, dust myself off, get back on course, and keep on keeping on.
In the meantime I hope you are well. See you in a few.
