With all of the surround-sound of craziness hitting us at every turn, it gets hard to know which way to go sometimes. Even by the admittedly low standards of the past four years, the last 10 days have been exceptionally evil and stupid. I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said, “Trump won. Get over it.” It took me a minute to realize that it was a old sticker from 2016, but it made me think that, at this point, the dude who stuck it there should probably heed his own advice.
Whatever. I’m doing what I do when the world gets too dysfunctional: I’m going paddling. It’s always the right time for a hydrotherapy session, and this 3-day trip around Cypress Island should do the trick. The weather should be decent, for January, and it’s a revisiting of some of my favorite San Juan locations, including Strawberry Island. I expect porpoises in the rip, salmon leaping in the morning air and eagles overhead. And rain, sweet rain.
We can talk more when I get back.
