Today was a win. I went out and got myself a fishing rod and went fishing. I rolled myself into a local sporting goods store and bought myself a fishing rod, bait, and hooks. After that I headed to the nearby lake and rolled out to a dock and fished. It did not start off well. I got my fishing line all farkled up and required help to unfarkle the line. Things did get better from there. Once I got my rod back inline I headed off to the dock again. It took me all of about 20 minutes to catch a nice bass. It felt fantastic. I really had a big smile on my face. Like I said I felt great. I realized that I didn’t grab my camera, so I couldn’t take a picture. Next time I will. Today was good day. I really have to enjoy those days I feel good. By the way…Bob and Andy I don’t care what you have to say. I use fishing bait…ha ha ha.
I have written a lot about the haunts of my past in Arizona. Today, I had the chance to speak with Erika today. We spoke and we had the chance to gain some understanding about us, past and present. I hate to use the word closure, but I it was something like that. I have really struggled a lot with losing Erika and our conversation gave me some understanding about us and how to proceed in life. She did so much for me after my accident and I will always be greatfull for that. But, life drove us apart and we were not able to be together. I do miss her and her companionship, but I have my path here in Texas. I wish her the best and hope to stay in touch on some level. I am not sure what that level is though. I think of all the things I lost after my accident losing Erika was the most difficult on me. I really loved being with her and I was very lucky to have her. So, Erika..thank you. I will always love you.
Tonight, I think I am going to go and have a beer. I have worked hard this week and I believe I deserve it.
Have a great weekend everybody. Do something fun.
