This summer has certainly been interesting. From my travels, the death of my mom, flight simulator releases, triathlon training and my award winning recipes, I feel like my summer has been full of extremes.
The highs include traveling to Colorado and visiting Rocky Mountain National Park and having lunch with the elk to winning “Best Meat Chili” at the company cook-off for the second year in a row. The lows were extreme in their own right. I laid my mom to rest after months of heart disease and visits to the doctor. I also decided not to participate in the local triathlon this year, feeling that I was not quite ready.
I look back over the entire experience with a long list of emotions, but look toward the future with optimism and happiness. Afterall, this November we get to get those icky, destructive, Republicans out of office. I will continue to train for next year’s triathlon season, studying up on productivity and leadership, and keeping you all informed of my reality and the flight simulator world!
As I look forward, I offer these images of summer as a point of reflection.
To The Future! Cheers!
