Traveling Through Life



A sunny Friday. The first sunny day in a while. The days, cloudy and rainy of late, are draining me. I’m still getting used to the weather patterns now that I’ve moved to coastal Maine. I awake, bleary-eyed, arrive to work a few minutes later than planned, waiting for the dreariness to pass. Long used to getting a mellow caffeine fix from green tea, I turn to iced coffee a couple of days a week. I follow those coffee fixes with a period of frenetic jitteriness, and then an epic slump.
