WOW, it's been such a long time since I posted anything. And if you know me, and I assume you do, you know I haven't been quiet, just not vocally with my typing.
What a weekend of .... I drove up to Lake Hughes on Saturday morning (a new destination to me) and then around to Lancaster/Palmdale and back home. It was one of my famous "get outta town" drives. It took a little over 1 hour to get there, and truthfully there ain't much there, but the phone-less drive was worth it. I was able to drive up through the mountains with no reception and to just be quiet and I loved it. For you who might not know, this is something I do several times a year. It allows me to simply wonder and explore. I am a traveller by nature and I don't ever remember a time of being afraid of where I was going or when and how I'd get back home. I rarely ever take a map. I simply have an idea of where I'm going and then I simply roam.
Someone mentioned Lake Hughes at dinner on Wednesday. I had not heard of it. They told me its approximate location, Mapquest told me how to get there and so off I went. At Lake Hughes there was a small art gallery, but it wasn't opened as I was there too early. Oh well, gives me a reason to return.
I did Yoga on Saturday afternoon and as told before, it was so refreshing and renewing. Ruthie is a goddess in so many ways. And I'm thankful she's a part of my life.
I met friends on Saturday evening and was entertained and charmed. And as happens on a rare occasion, I was simply Dan.
Sunday was another day to be alone and I took advantage of it. I had several things planned and chucked all of them. I watched the King's Speech, which I thought was brilliant, watched the Super Bowl (and my point spread prediction was exact but backwards) and then I watched endless mindless other TV shows.
At the end of the day, I was lulled into a catatonic state of nothingness, slightly disappointed that I didn't conquer the world, and at peace knowing I didn't have to conquer anything.
Here's wishing you and ME a blessed week full of peace and harmony!
