Once in a while I just don’t have it and I don’t feel like writing. We just returned from a number of adventures and I have stories and photos piled up, and I have other ideas rattling around in my head but I just don’t seem to be sitting down at my desk.
I always seem to need catch up time when I return home. We may be living in paradise but someone still has to restock the kitchen, wash the clothes, sweep the bugs out of the corners, and explain to the spiders why it’s time for them to move out again. Rainy season has returned and the yard is growing and needs some tending.
So, I’ve been getting chores done, spending time with neglected friends, cruising around on my bike, relaxing a bit at home, puttering in the yard, and generally enjoying some down time. We’ve been spending the evenings watching the latest season of Scandal on Netflix. Wow, what a well done and engaging show!
But, I will get it together one of these days. I have photos from our time in Casco Viejo in Panama City, our second day in Bocas del Toro (who would have thought one side of the island is so different from the other!), and our couple days at the Rambala Jungle Lodge. Of course, there are interesting things going on around here too.
I enjoy writing and sharing photos on my blog, but I also don’t want it to feel like an obligation so i figure if I’m not feeling it, it will get set aside until I do. But, I don’t want to wait until things are no longer fresh in my mind so I will get with it soon.
To close though, I’ll leave you with a feel good story. I wanted to ride my bike to the south part of town today but the Pan-American highway was all jammed up. One east bound lane was closed because workmen were working on the overpass above, and this made it hard to find a break in traffic. There always seems to be a policeman below when things are going on above. Today he saw me waiting to cross, and stepped out on to the highway to stop traffic for me. I know it’s his job to be helpful but it still made me feel very cared for.
