Two weeks from tomorrow I'll be getting on a plane and flying to Atlanta. My dear friend Denise will pick me up and take me away to a whole different land for 9 days. I'm looking forward to a change of scenery.
After a couple of days in Atlanta, we'll be heading about an hour (or so) north to her farm in SE Tennessee. There she has two beautiful horses, dogs, farmland, and mountains. Her plan is to get me on horseback and take me on a ride up to the top of her mountain where I can not only enjoy the view but perhaps breathe again. Despite how I feel about dealing with airports now, I'm looking forward to this trip. I need this trip.
Working from home has its advantages, but the fact that I've been trapped here with all these reminders for over a month is not an advantage. It's a distinct disadvantage. I need to get out of here for awhile. Need to get a little perspective and a little bit of pleasure in my life. I love my daughter, but I think she'd want me to live.
I plan to do just that.
Peace - D
