Call it delusional or optimistic. Either way it is distracting and I've already spent too much time already and it is only February. I need to stop, step back and get present again. There's a lot of cool things to look forward to this year that require my immediate attention.
I've been missing on what I'm going to call "developed beauty". Beauty that has space to grow from having basic needs met. Architecture, art, music. I'm missing the best of human development. And also the light of the far north -- Unfortunately no plans there this year. It's not from lack of trying. Some things just fall in place and others just don't despite the wanting.
I've spent the last few years immersing myself in high density chaos, learning to thrive and adapt to it. Grateful for the opportunities that have presented itself which have far exceeded my widest expectations. Couldn't have been able to dream up anything near the depth of what I've experienced.
Looks like I may have finally figured out what works for me in high heat and humidity. Am still in disbelief with how well I did last time. Worked hard for long hours with no negative fall out after. It has taken 7 visits over 2 years to high temperature places but it appears my system is finally showing signs of quick adaptation.
Glad I didn't give up. The last set of pictures would have never happened had I did.
