Inspiration and information was flowing through me so feverishly this afternoon that I felt it was best for me to come home and spend the day writing. Thus, I am off the streets and back in the safety of my home. Reflecting back on the week, it was quite possibly the most mind altering week of my life and I will certainly never be the same. A full write-up will be shared in the next few days.
I made it through the first 24 hours. It hasn’t been easy but I am well and happy. I’m not used to carrying a backpack full of stuff, but I need to if I want to sleep through the cold nights. Last night was one of the longest nights ever. I was in my sleeping bag for 13 hours and I slept for a good amount of that time, but I was also awake dozens of times fighting off the cold. 50 degrees doesn’t seem that bad but I guess it is just half my body temp. At one point in the night, I thought it was nearly morning and it turned out to only be 12:30. I almost gave up.
