A Retreat of Sorts Day 6 Saturday Nov 2 2019


Mostly good day today.  It’s becoming more difficult to decide what to do with the day.  That’s a good thing.  Part of this exercise was to get away from things to chill out and be able to step outside of everyday life.  Another part of this exercise was to arrive at a point where I didn’t want to be here by myself anymore and go back to my everyday life.

Today, out on trail, it finally hit me….I could go back.  My resvn has me checking out this coming Wed morning and I do plan on staying till the checkout, but today was another one of those you should be here with your family days.  I miss them.  I’ve missed them the whole time I’ve been here, but the shine on the mountains/outdoors/hiking/leafing/etc outshone the longing.

Went to Price Lake today, it’s a nice easy 2.3 mile loop around a man made lake off the Parkway.  Lots of families out there.  Lots of cute little kids with mommy and daddy, as well as plenty of friendly dogs.  Was still pretty wet from the rains of the past few days, but still a good hike.  I was contemplating doing another nearby trail; Green Knob, but it looked like it was going to be moderate/strenuous and my legs were all like srsly? That’s recovery day 2 from almost dying because I’m stupid (see Day 4) for those keeping track at home.

Instead I went over to The Blowing Rock.  Remind me not to be on the parkway or touristy stuff on a weekend again.  Took a bit to find parking, but there’s not much of that anyway.  The Blowing Rock is literally maybe an acre on top of a hill with a rock surrounded by an old Indian Legend you have to pay to see.  Still, spectacular views and a nice little place to walk around before heading back to the condo to watch the Gators beat lose to Georgia.  Shit. Well, at least FSU lost at home to the Canes 27-10 in a game with a line of FSU by 3.  Got a couple nice things at the gift shop for the fam too, I hope they like them.

Have not read, have not meditated.  No idea what I’m going to do tomorrow, or the next, or the next, and that’s ok. No more better thoughts on how to disassociate/re-associate negative feelings with positive.  Actually, I think I speak with she again on Monday so there’s that.

Nothing else cunning or witty to say at present, so TTFN.
