Today, while hiking in the Redwoods, this sentence flew into my head and got stuck there: You are flooded with the past, and I am brimming with the future.
If you’re wondering why I have been tumblr MIA (which you haven’t been, let’s be honest), it’s because I have been on a giant road trip of the Western US. Starting at my parent’s house in Southern California, me and a friend drove south to San Diego, then East to Phoenix, then hiked and camped in a million national parks (Sedona’s red rocks, The Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyonlands, The Grand Tetons, Yellowstone), before heading west to Seattle, where we are now. We will now be spending two weeks driving down the West Coast, ending in LA for Halloween and Boo-Over.
I mean, I love the internet and all, and I’m sure I will run back to its comforting embrace once all this is over, but for now, I can’t stand to be in front of a computer for more than five minutes at a time. Which is good, since we usually don’t have electricity anyway.
