Healing the soul and body

I went over to Wilderstead yesterday afternoon. I was tired and overworked, and I debated about staying and trying to slam some more stuff through, but in the end needed to get away more. I'm glad I did. It was a beautiful late afternoon in the holler. I crossed the Pishon and poked about. Found a deer skeleton that had been worked over by coyotes. Saw a lot of downed timber. I could stay busy for a week just running my chain saw. And I had a lovely night in the cabin.

Had a good night's sleep (a rarity for me these days). I felt so good this morning, I found the energy to do some chores. I filled in some of the trenches I dug last fall. Then I cleaned everything up and headed back. It was a beautiful, bright, spring-like day. I even had to turn my A/C on.
