A stop along the way

Somewhere between here and there, the unwinding begins and the mind begins to clear. You start to consider what's really important in your journey from this place to that place, and one thing that's important is simply stopping for a while. To rest, doncha know.

The 1,000-mile journey doesn't have to be a metaphor for anything. It can simply be a trip to see what's out there. We have friends and family to see out here - we've already say hello and goodbye to many of them - but the main purpose is to drain the crap out of the mind and start filling it up with nourishing goodness.

With any luck, the draining is now complete and that's why this ramble makes only marginal sense. Today we're going out to fill our minds and souls back up with big blue skies, mountain roads and trees as far as the eye can see. More friends tomorrow, more sky Thursday, more friends Friday and then a leisurely drive back to what we left behind.

Will we be the same crazed drones who embarked on this journey? Lord, I hope not. But it's too soon along the way to know who we will be.
