Yesterday, some friends I
know through my fun job and I floated by raft and or kayak down the Little Miami River. It was about a six-mile trek, and we listened to music, had a few drinks, got some sun, and nearly lost a guy from our party for a short time when he got stuck in a bed of trees. Afterward, we decided to grab a bite to eat at Fifty West Production Works, which is where the kayak launch kind of starts and ends. I used to work across the street at the BrewPub, so it was nice to see a few old friends, and the food was excellent at the grill.
Overall, it was a gorgeous day, and I was thankful for it. I felt like I needed some good friends to have a lot of laughter with because my life is straight up emotionally baffling.
Today, I’m feeling sadness. There are so many things in this world and its people that I will never understand, and I’m really struggling with that today. This weekend was both confusing and lovely, and hopefully I will learn to navigate the confusing parts and embrace the lovely ones more often.
That’s how it goes sometimes. Good days and bad days and Eh days. Sometimes you can string a few good ones together, and it helps you forget whatever has been bothering you.
