I can't say I have anything new to report. Life has basically been about work, editing and on occasion doing science.
I am relishing the last of the longish evenings -- now that Ernest is back I am back to watching the sun start to set as we finish up our last walk.
It seems like this summer was a big gyp.
Hot,work,too hot, operations, caretaking, work.
All I can remember is the blur of emails, running to and fro each soaker hose and the occasional moment of calm.
Most of those were short.
It felt weird not to train for anything, nor spend long hours talking to friends while walking. I miss it, but this year was not the year.
Today I told someone that I am looking to simplify my life - not add complications to sap yet more energy from me. It seems that life is throwing those complications at us right and left. Its just learning to say no, okay and maybe later to all those opportunities, chances and obligations.
I have said enough and maybe not much of anything.
