I’ve been out of the world for a while lately. Well, my world at any rate. I headed back to Nevada for a long weekend working with my employers (who also happen to be good friends) and got to see some snow for the first time this winter.
I did not get to visit the homestead, but will be able to in a couple weeks when we head back for a conference we are attending.
I returned to Oregon for one day and then headed out to a camp to be trained on their ropes challenge course.
Both in Nevada and out at camp was a great time away from regular life for a while and spending quite a bit of time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
I got back to the Norm this last weekend but I’ve been out of sorts ever since. Today it just about overwhelmed me. I had to get away. So, I went for a walk. A long one. Nearly two hours long. All by myself. I wandered the neighborhood, soaking up the warm spring air, enjoying all the beautiful blossoming trees. I ended up at a secluded park at which I spent quite a bit of time. The time focusing on God’s natural world was a balm to my soul.
There are not many things I like about living in a big city. But since I have to for the time being, I’m glad I live in a place that has beautiful places which I can visit. And next time, I’ll be sure to get out and ease my re-entry back to city life as soon as possible so I don’t go so stir crazy again.
Can’t wait till we’re back on the homestead for good!
