Getting back offers challenges and opportunities – especially when I need to get ready to go again. Time away is refreshing but now comes the hard part – getting the routine going. The daily writing. I’m not sure I can take that much time away from my daily habit. I do hope some of you missed it – I did. You’d think with all the portability of equipment I would have had the time to sit down and write every day. Nope – didn’t happen. It’s not all bad. We do need vacations from routine. Robert Orben once wrote, “A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.” Unfortunately I didn’t read that before I traveled. I filled my days with too many things to do and see. Maybe Jesus had it right when he rose early in the morning and went to a place apart from everyone and just spent time meditating and listening – a daily mini vacation. Well at any rate it is good to be back and not to a grind but to some wonderful opportunities. There will be more to share and some wonderful pictures I will post from time to time. Oh, and thanks to those who missed the Sonrise thoughts.
