I awakened feeling tired and sad to the bones. It's been a rough couple of weeks, and the reality of it is hitting home now that the crisis phase is passing. I did as I always do when I'm blue - I headed out the door into the forest on my bike. I rode my Meriwether fat bike today because our forests are snowy (although much less so than in "normal" years).
It was gray and snowing lightly for most of my time in the forest. However, occasionally, the clouds would recede to lower elevations, and we'd see a little blue sky and sun. I'd pull out my camera really fast for those moments!
Alas, today, my usual bike riding "cure" for the blues didn't do the job. At least I have a lovable pair of pups to keep me company.
