- It is currently 55 degrees F here in Portland (where my body is on Monday) and 67 degrees F with sunshine in Rockaway Beach, Oregon (where my heart resides).
- I have been listening to the sound of the surf in the distance as if I am at Saltair Station only to become aware it not the surf but the droning freeway noise when a siren goes by.
- There is very little chance I will be sitting by a campfire at sunset watching the birds migrate to their winter homes.
Thanks for listening! I feel better. Now it is time to stop this self-indulgent whining and go back to being grateful for all that I have.
