It’s been a few weeks.
I haven’t felt much like writing here and to be honest, I’ve got a huge back log of things to share from not only Thanksgiving but I still have Alaska items to share, and now I have posts from Arkansas and a camping trip we took over Easter—and it’s a lot. I have enough photos processed to write a few weeks worth of posts but the last thing I feel like doing is sitting down and writing. I feel stuck in my writing here. I basically feel like I just do trip reports and while I enjoy that I need to figure out a new way to write and make it work for me. It might be sharing less photos. And as much as 2020 felt hard and was difficult in its own way, 2021 and the return to “normalcy” feels even harder and that has put a damper on my mood.
Looking back at these photos and seeing Skater Boy Forest with his hair cracks me up! This feels like eons ago and yet it was not quite six months ago! He’s since lost two more teeth, the most recent one last night, a top tooth! And even just remembering the feeling of life in November versus now—not knowing when vaccinations would be getting to the general population and here we are now and some areas are having trouble getting enough people to come out to get vaccines by appointment that they have even started having first-come, first-served days at some hubs around here. You could never have seen that sitting back there along the Guadalupe River in November.
I am glad it is spring, though that also feels like it is rapidly hurtling along and we will be in summer conditions before we know it.
Hopefully I’ll get out of my writing funk and get back to sharing more soon.
