It was good to take a break. We had a fantastic time. Trying to push through some depressed feelings, though not surprising. Transition from vacation back to work, a breakup blindside, a few weeks left of tax season, while juggling end of senior high school year and meeting with college special ed program directors, and still no dishwasher since January. Overwhelming and chaotic. In just a few weeks, it’s all over and the empty expanse of summer will flip my life again. One problem, one day, one moment at a time. Just trying to breathe through it all. My boys great great grandfather designed Central Park. They have heard it all their lives, but it became real as they walked through it.
