when i woke up, it was still dark. the weather report called for rain, and the floorboards were not just chilly but actually cold underfoot. i cooked myself some waffles, laced up my shoes and headed three hours west for a day of hiking.
at the end of the day, it would have been so easy to just keep on heading toward the sunset. i have a warm sweater, a green dress and enough medication to last through august.
but i thought, my cats are probably hungry now, and my husband won't be home until wednesday.
so, here i am again.
