Nothing. I’ve got nothing

Bad, bad headache yesterday. I went for a long walk hoping that getting out into the beautiful day would chase it. It didn’t. Came home and tried to think some relaxation into my head and neck. It got worse. It wasn’t a migraine,  so I didn’t have anything to really take.

Reading didn’t work for me very well, though I did read a little. Something outside of the usual for me, which I am liking quite a bit. I watched a movie.  (Side note: Tilda Swinton is so amazing) I tried music. Only hot water made it a little better, and there’s a limit to how much time a person can keep her head under water. Besides, it roars back worse when the hot water goes down the drain.

So I just sort of bumbled through it. Still have it. Going to work. Maybe some coffee will help.

No words today.

Here are a few pictures of the park. It really was a glorious day. I was grateful to be able to get out in it. Don’t you love it when the blue sky trees moss all play off of each other and turn everything into a miracle? No way for someone like me to do it justice….

In which I take my dead father on a road trip

My Beautiful Aunt Cathy brought my Dad’s ashes back from Boise and I picked them up at Diane’s this morning. 

It was one of those spectacular blue sky days, so I tried to find someone to go to the beach with me. Failed. Driving out to Diane’s place, I couldn’t help but notice that the mountain was out, so I decided to take Dad for a drive. 

The car pointed itself down the old scenic highway 30, and we drove to Hood River. Stopped at a few waterfalls and overlooks. Then drove South on highway 35 with the mountain sitting practically on top of the road. I’d forgotten what a beautiful drive that is. 

After I got home, I headed right back out for dinner. Long day. Tired but happy. I hope Dad enjoyed it. 

So not many words today. To fill the space, here are a few pictures. 


Considering, reconsidering

Do I, don’t I 

Could I, should I 

Will I, won’t I

Maybe, maybe not. 

Sensible, silly

Dangerous, safe

Good, bad

Casual, serious

Absolutely, never

Immediately, next month

A little bit, entirely

Overthinking much?
