  • Went on my first trip out of state since Feb 2020, and the first trip with friends in an even longer time. Vermont/New Hampshire were great!
  • Poured my dad’s ashes into a brook near his cabin in Vermont. He died almost a year ago, but I was avoiding travel because of the pandemic, and also just… felt blocked from paying last respects.
  • Started working on transition plans with the clients I will be pausing work for during the summer, as I take a couple months to recharge and also work on new things that will help shift my business towards things that are more sustainable for me over the long haul. This is not the easiest road to navigate, but just grinding through it and hoping it will pay off in the long run.
  • Ate lots and lots and lots of fiddleheads.
  • Visited a horse cemetery, after following a sign directly in front of an ice cream parlor that said “horse cemetery” with a big arrow on it. This is a thing I did not realize existed. There were… three dead horses from over 100 years ago, preserved in perpetuity.
  • Laughed more in the last 72 hours than I probably have in the past year combined. But also got incredibly exhausted, and definitely need to do what I can to make this coming week a bit more low key.
