It’s Oly Time

Miles and miles beneath the wheels,
we made it back under a shining sun,
mostly - but buffeted by biting winds -
it didn't even snow on us 'til Washington.

And now home.
Like an ointment I wait for it to sink in,
to fill the vacancies and mend the lacerations,
to calm and to nourish and to fill -
I'll overflow with everything that's been lacking -
I'll merge my Dionysus with my Apollo
and find peace in my passion and
slumber in my wine.

As I sleep, dreams of assignments overdue,
assignments I've already done,
assignments who may only haunt me through ghosts.
I've overcome them all.

I'll never ride out, now,
without knowing when and how I'll return.


On the road again again again

It seems like I've hit the road a lot over the past few years. Oh well. I think this will be the last time for awhile, anyway. We're heading out tomorrow. Oly, here we come! 🙂

I don't want to jinx myself, because there are still a couple of what I consider "courtesy steps" to take, but at this point it is pretty safe to say ...

I am gainfully employed.
