I don’t know if I have writer’s block, but today it’s been difficult to come up with anything ‘Wandering’ related … probably because I am not wandering, sauntering, running, jetting, skiing, fishing, skiing, camping, gardening, building, soaking, or even planning to do any of those things right now.
I am helping my mom who has to be off of her foot for 2 weeks while damaged ligaments heal … it’s nice having her here. We had a tumultuous relationship for decades. We butted heads always … but life has a way of softening edges, opening eyes, and changing hearts. I’m glad.
It is also allowing me time to enjoy that space in my soul … not cramming it so totally full that my day hasn’t many unaccountable minutes in it. Or using up hours just for the sake of spending them like pennies at the dollar store.
So, my winter wanderings are curtailed for a while. Today, I’m here in my home, with my mom, Squeaks the Cat and mom’s dog Charlie (Kujo in disguise). Sweetie has gone North to his gun shop (Council Mountain Gunworks, LLC) and he hasn’t rubbed it in that he’s going skiing tomorrow … I’ll wander vicariously through him for the next couple of weeks …
