Time away from the norm and all things routine is vital to maintaining sanity. But I’ve returned now, rested and recooperated. (Which does mean I cheated and scheduled my bit about leaving to post just before I returned.) No, I didn’t write. Not a word. Instead, I took some time to soak in all that was happening around me. It seemed appropriate considering I was exploring places I’d never been.
