I Miss Nature Right Now
I understand how much nature means to me now that I can't be out there and feel like I'm one with it. But I understand the joy of nature the most when I'm at a place like Carpenter lake. I wish I knew when I could go back, but there is just no set timetable for me.
I don't want this post to sound too negative, but I know it is just a bit. It's really intended to give an update and to show the difference that experiencing nature can make. Take away nature and the joy and happiness goes with it. But knowing that it's still there waiting for me gives me hope for when I'm able to return.
The pain in my head doesn't seem to be getting better as quickly as I had hoped right now. I have pain and dizziness with any little effort I try to make, including just the effort of thinking. Most everything else seems to be progressing in an orderly fashion though. At least that part is encouraging.
My next post will hopefully be more like my regular stuff. I'm not exactly sure when that will be. I'll write posts whenever I feel well enough to do it, so they will be coming on an irregular basis. Before I write another one though I'm going to attempt to read a few of your blogs and leave some comments. Again, I'm not sure when yet. Anything I do will come as I feel well enough.
I'm keeping both of these things as goals that I hope will help me improve my health right now. This post may make things seem very bleak, and they do seem like that to me a lot of times, but at least now I have a plan for a return. So that is encouraging. If I take small steps towards my normal habits I'll wake up one day and realize that I'm back. Then I'll go back to my forest and have a visit with the squirrels.
