There are a total of five girls (by blood) that consider me an uncle and I’m very guilty of not spending enough time with them. I dropped all responsibilities Saturday and spent the entire day with my middle brother and two youngest nieces. It rained pretty much all day but that didn’t come close to stopping the Conneen fun.
I’m currently typing on a keyboard in the AC on my comfortable couch while eating leftover Mongolian Beef and watching the ever so entertaining local news. Hard ground is below me and if I need to get anywhere I simply hop in my wheelchair and go. For now, this is the life I choose but earlier this week, none of these luxuries existed. I was in the heart of the Florida Everglades for 5 days with two good friends. As much as I enjoy this easy way of living, I continue to find myself wanted to be away from it all. The Native Americans have no idea how well they had it before we came along. Or did they?
