Alone in the Mayhem

Crazy busy at work for the last few weeks. Then add in busy at home with family and kid related festivities - homework, projects, sports practices, bike racing - it's all been a little loopy. I haven't ridden my own bike in weeks. Not cool.

Times like this I daydream about living like Dick Proenneke. Who? The dude that lived in Alaska on his own for years. Our local PBS station replays this film at least once a year. Just a cabin and sharp axe required. No work, commute, or helping kids with endless math homework sheets. Yes please.

Live there for years? No. A good solid month would do for me. I'll keep dreaming.
