Stranger Days

Autumn brings shorter days, especially when daylight savings ends.

The past couple of weeks have been eventful:

A Halloween night camping trip in the woods next to a cemetery, complete with a dead owl and creeping cat.

A 20 hour road trip and two days in Ohio with a great group of rowdy kids to help bring in a new area of leadership, again, but in a new skin.

A cranky dear veteran instructor friend is distanced in the middle of settling dust from spinning and competing narratives.

A choke sleeper hold from a leader who fears and hears more than listens and leads.

A lovely walk in golden woods with ambling dogs and loving wife and handfuls of lucky buckeyes.

A realization of a need to be a more effective teacher, especially for advanced students.

And an ever present realization that keeping a journal up to date just isn't my thing.
