Hi Everyone. I'm back from a vacation up in the mountains. I had thought I would get some time to introspect and evaluate while I was up there. You know, let the mountain air clear my mind so I could think again.
I got loads of pictures (like 300-some). Husband and I reconnected. We had a nice visit with his mother. The kid got one final family vacation before heading off to school. And I was so busy I did not think through anything.
In a way, I needed a few days of not running that little hamster wheel in my head. I certainly feel clearer. Maybe it gave me the chance for clarity, if not the clarity itself. I do know I have some major thinking to do and having a clear brain certainly can't hurt.
Unfortunately, I still have one last big thing on my mind, clouding up the brain pool - taking Daughter off to CSU. I think once I have that out of the way, I'll be able to relax enough to figure out where my writing career is going and how to achieve the goals I want to achieve (or even what those goals are).
Anyway, I hope y'all enjoy whatever ends up here over the next couple of weeks.
Oh, and in case any of you were worried, the thinking I have to do is about how best to proceed with my writing career - NOT whether to end it and go work for the local vet cleaning kennels.
(That first pic up there was taken by my Daughter. It's the view from a tourist station near the top of Trail Ridge Road. If I remember correctly, this was at around 11,000 feet. Yep, despite the heatwave, thar's snow in them thar hills.)
