I recently recognized that I do a lot of thinking in the shower. There have been many times in which I start a conversation with, “it dawned on me while I was in the shower…..” Almost always it’s a “problem solving” thing, usually dealing with work. Well, this week’s shower-thinking it occurred to me that this shower feels so good: great water pressure, floor tiles gleaming white and the water can get HOT, the way I like it.
As we are physically and mentally switching our gears to a life of travel, it crossed my mind that there will be things that I will miss. Maybe even miss a lot: my pillows, our sharp kitchen knives, easy wi-fi, a pantry filled with staples, good speakers….. I wonder if I would miss wearing suits, putting on nylons, being a “boss”? Right now I can’t imagine missing any of that!
And the saddest part of all of this “thinking” is the knowledge of the precipice of our journey…. it will likely be the loss of our dearest friend Carlos; hard to imagine how much the family will miss that fellow. (take break from blog, cry…. practice?)
