It’s Good to Be Back
After 21 days of rafting the Colorado River, I rolled across the country with a couple of fine traveling companions. I got home the night before Thanksgiving and was so happy to see my lovely wife. My daughter was asleep, but I hugged her and kissed her anyway.
I can’t say enough about the experience. It was everything I hoped — amazing scenery, great whitewater, great people, spiritual — with little nuggets of extra goodness thrown in for good measure.
I stole both of these images from a friend on the trip. His photos kicked my photos asses. Apparently my seven-year-old camera doesn’t have cool color saturation settings. Thanks Tyson.
Aside from writing about a thousand words of a new short story, I did no writing. I think it was a nice break. I feel rejuvenated and ready to hammer out revisions as I head into the new year.
I should be posting more regularly as we head in to the last year of the world. Upcoming posts will include my favorite reads of 2011 and Grand Canyon lessons as they pertain to writing. Hope you’ve all been well.
