Down the road

Posted by Ken Campbell August 1, 2008 0 Comment 655 views

That last day of routine before a break, that’s an interesting day. When you have the chance to see the work-a-day as an observer almost, a traveling spirit that will soon be out of range. The mundane real world that consumes so much of our time: it will soon be gone.

I’ll be gone, rather. Canoeing, hiking, kayaking. Fresh water and salt. The Pacific coast and a wilderness lake. Mary, Micah and me. And we leave tomorrow.

That feeling, when you were a kid, when summer camp was going to start in a day or two, when your stomach was in knots and you could feel the energy coiled up in each and every muscle. Expectations and joy. Before everything else got so complicated.
