There is plenty of suffering in the world. There is plenty of joy as well. All of it needs to be experienced.

I woke up in the best mood! All cozy in my camper bed, warm from the furnace, the blankets, and Rainbow Sprinkles next too me. I am so grateful that I am able to do this trip. I am only a couple hundred miles from my destination, so taking it easy this morning.
Not all is rosy. I stepped in dog pooh, didn’t know it and shared that with the camper floor. The fire alarm/dinner bell went off when I cooked my egg, I burnt my hand on the skillet, and part of my egg fell to the floor and was quickly cleaned up by Lollipop.
As I sit here drinking coffee and soaking my sore foot in Epsom salts, I can’t help but ponder the blessing that I have to see the world in a positive way. I know many folks who cannot or do not do so, and my heart breaks for them. I don’t know how to help them, suppose I cannot, but I can listen when I am able and try to give another perspective.
There is plenty of suffering in the world. There is plenty of joy as well. All of it needs to be experienced. I have always been a big picture person. I consider the beauty of this country, unfolding and changing as I travel, and I know that I am blessed. Dog pooh seems so small in comparison!
Montana is such a beautiful state! I am in such awe as it unfolds in front of me. I am here now at my final destination, just south of Hamilton. I am staying at a fly fishing RV site, right by the bitterroot river. It is truly magical. Camp is all set, and my training starts tomorrow.
I ventured up to a hot spring today, had a nice swim and soak. On the way I met a heard of big horn sheep in someone’s front yard! They are so beautiful and majestic. I have seen a heard of mountain goats, a heard of antelope, mule deer and the bighorns. So much to see and experience! Can’t wait to share all that I learn!
