My upcoming week is all about contrasts of locale and intention. From feet soaking in the icy cold Nooksack River to feet pounding the pavement of the Big Apple, I'll take it all in and focus on the present moment. Hopefully.
My favorites when camping? Drinking wine with my feet in the rushing river. Sleeping in the tent with the only sound the river water flowing over stones and boulders twenty yards away. Drinking my morning coffee to the smell of wood smoke and the sound of a crackling fire. Glorious.
We'll just arrive home from the "wilderness" and I'll shift gears to begin packing my bag for New York City and the BlogHer Conference. I'll be bringing comfortable but stylish clothing, some uber cute shoes, make-up bag, and laptop; ready to take in all the conference offers as well as the sights and sounds of the Big City.
I understand there's a bed bug infestation in NYC. Guess that will be my connection back to wilderness and nature.
Quite a contrast.
