Adrift in the world

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…
