Dark Wings, Dark Words
It was one of those trips that you kind of need a trip to recover from.
If experiences were weighted equally then I'd be able to say that this last round of Bay Area travel was one of the best I've had in a while.
That's not how the human mind works, however.
I spent time with a friend who is in some pretty dark circumstances. A dear friend, and circumstances that I'm fairly powerless to affect.
Not completely, so I'm doing what I can and have pledged to do more when needed.
I feel a little guilty for feeling okay about this. Which is a doorway into a dark spiral that I'm just not going to step through. After all, if I do that, I won't be able to help when needed.
