That old saying time heals all wounds is true, at least for this wounded heart. I'm feeling better and more of myself. Things at work have not really changed but time and distance always helps a problem and I am feeling better. I still miss my friend who is no longer at work, and will continue to miss her but know I must move on. This week-end away in the forest was great. We are unable to go to our favorite ridge because the snow is still too deep. So instead we went to Mono Lake and the forest area around it. Many trees have fallen and make wonderful homes for chipmunks and squirrels, I spent hours trying to get photos of the frisky beasts but eventually gave up. Instead took pictures of logs they were much better at holding still!!! Driving home the mountain passes were full of budding aspen trees, and dogwood trees. It was beautiful and mesmerizing I got lost in thought and time passed swiftly. Now I'm mentally preparing myself to return to work after having 6 glorious days off.
