Hi friends, I hope all is well. I’ve got exactly one hour before I have to leave Aitkin again, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I think I’ll be coming up north most of the summer. Mainly because of how good I’ve felt this weekend.
I drove up on Friday night, picked up my race packet (more on that later) and met friends at the bar for a beer. And I really did have one beer, before heading home and going to bed. I spent a couple hours out and about on Saturday before catching up with another friend. And then I went home and sat on the deck. Eventually a friend came over and we watched the moon rise. Which I somehow did realize was something that happened. As it got darker the moon rose higher, and it was so great to be sitting outside chatting, without an agenda.
Are you a sunrise, sunset, or moonrise watcher? I usually sleep with the shades open so I can see the sunrise, but this difference was wonderful!
