My family has come and gone. My grad work was late, then extended, and finally completed. My sleep cycle app tells me that my sleep quality was at 54% last night, the best its been in weeks. That is not good, but I will take improvement where I can get it.
I have many words for you about the visit with my family- the photo above was taken one evening as we lounged by the lake and dipped into the chilly water. I will eventually write about the little Japanese restaurant and Antigua, and the home that stands over the lake, but it will have to wait for now. In many ways I feel that all of my words have been expended. I feel the need to sort out why I write, and my purpose for the blog. It is an outlet, of course, but I want to be authentic, and I'm just not sure I'm hitting the mark. My friend Steph emailed, commenting that I'm always waxing poetic, and she was wondering how I am really doing.
The things that I write are true, but tailored from time to time. I want to drag you into this experience with me, with the good and the bad, perhaps leaving out the ugly in order to reach the delicate balance necessary.
I welcome your thoughts as I clearly do not have a grip on this.
