I thought I might check in.
It has been a long time.
Sometimes life just sweeps you up and casts you out to sea for a while. For many months I have been adrift. Lost in an ocean of obligation. Treading the waters of exhaustion. And, yes, trying to out swim the sharks.
I have decided that I need to shed some of the objects that are weighing me down. Free myself of the weight of some things that I thought were so dear to me, until they threatened to pull me under.
I see land on the horizon and I am swimming for shore.
Just a few more strokes and I can once again baste in the heat of the sun warmed beach.
Just a few more strokes…
