No, it's not a word. But it'll do for a post title.
Some time in reflection helps lower the anxieties of the moment. I'm on a far more even keel than I was earlier in the week. 'Bout time.
And, a visit with a good friend helped as well. Goodness me, a good visit. Thank you G., for kind attention.
On the left is a picture from the Blue Ridge Parkway of the amazing bridge that skirts the side of Grandfather Mountain, known as the Linn Cove Viaduct. An incredible structure, built to do as little harm as possible to the surrounding environment. You feel as if you're hanging in the air when traveling its brief span. Links will give you better photographs, but this is one I took myself!
Of course, the bears don't always wait for the night to do some foraging.

I say "our porch" but in fact it isn't mine. It belongs to my dear friends, C & S who have housed me (and often fed me) for over a year. I've paid a bit, sure, but not nearly enough. All the money in the world wouldn't be enough to express my deep gratitude to them for their very kind hospitality. We get along quite well, and they have been very understanding of my situation. It has been so great to come home to some hugs and company in the evenings.
My commute to work is over 30 minutes. (Don't laugh. I know there are many of you who'd love to have only a thirty minute commute! And the traffic isn't even that bad). I am so blessed! But the time is coming soon when I will need to have my own place, something closer to work, and some place I can put my stuff in. (It's all in storage at my place of business. And we may need that room back. Plus, I've missed some of it).
My work is odd and my hours unusual. So that makes the commute a bit strange sometimes. No two days are alike, except when they are.
