YHC has been out for a few weeks for a variety of reasons. This was the first day back in the gloom and I noticed no one signed up to Q.  What a way to make sure to get back into it, is to lead.

Humidity, 100%. A visitor, Mr. Brady, arrived via running from his hotel already drenched in sweat.

Naked Moleskin:

Prayers to Farah and Farah – family. PUD 2.0 travelling. Xenu – 2.0 heading to school/travelling.

Basically, my message today was experiences. Spending time with family, I’d rather do something and be in the moment with them rather than making sure the pictures are right. Sometimes you might not want to go on an outing with the family but the rest do…just go. In the end, you’ll be glad you did.


Glad to be back in the gloom.
