Today was just another day in the life of this Nordic Nomad. If I were back home, I’d be sitting in the recliner, pellet stove burning away, gazing out the window. I’d be looking out over snow, lots of snow, and having no thoughts of going outside. Instead, I’m in Florida, bathed in partly sunny 75 degree weather, reclining on my chaise lounge with soda in hand, looking out over the plains of Kissimmee Preserve State Park.
What I mean by another day in the life, is regardless if I’m here or back in Osakis, I have a daily routine, and for most days it’s a simple routine. I wouldn’t be going somewhere or doing something everyday if I were back home, so it’s OK if I don’t go somewhere or do something everyday while on this trip (within reason).
That’s a feeling that really gnawed at me in the Everglades, that feeling of having to see/do everything and if I didn’t, I felt like I failed.
I think I may have gotten carried away, and started thinking of the blog as a kind of travelogue, and by not doing it all, I was in effect doing nothing. I lost site that it’s a journal, chronicling the trip being made over the winter and into the spring of 2019.
Today, the road ahead is looking a bit brighter.
