Moment of Bliss (Summer Hiatus) Pt 1

I am stepping away from devices this month in favor of much-needed self-care. I’ll be out in the wilds. Perhaps up in the turquoise and emerald forests. Or, the sapphire and sable deserts. You can bet I’ll be biking and running, writing and reading lots.

While I’m away, I’m putting the robots in charge. They are tasked with sharing a weekly cache of past travel pics plus an inspiring quote. I suspect that with the pandemic resurging, an eviction crisis looming, the USPS implosion, the fight for social and racial justice, back-to-school-just-kidding plans, plus the election, we’re all going to need lots of fuel to power us through this fall. We have a lot of hard work ahead. May this offer some fuel for you.
