Day 132 – May 12, 2018

Skewed – DWP

A second straight day running errands in Gettysburg draws me away from town out into the battlefield.  When you live so close to a historical site, you really don’t pay much attention to the “attractions”.  Living within an hours distance of D.C., Baltimore and a little further from Philadelphia, my desire to go site-seeing, just isn’t a priority. The mark here is the monument dedicated to Battery A, First Rhode Island Light Artillery.  One of the 1,328 monuments that dot the national park. This is a really great time of year to visit.  The weather is awesome and the tourists aren’t as large as usual.  In a matter of weeks all that will change, but for now, it’s worthy of being a subject option for the daily prompt.  Things haven’t been going so great lately.  There seems to be so many obstacles that have popped up right in front of me.  And just when I think I have cleared an obstacle another one rushes up as if to say “not so fast”.  It is frustrating, demoralizing and really makes you question your self-esteem.  I cannot tell you how many times in the past 2 months I have said “I’m getting too old for this”, but it has been a lot.  It feels like I am running in quicksand, and just when I find a little hard ground it gives way.  But then a trip out here reminds me how skewed my thinking is, because at least I am able to run through quicksand.  The 51,000 who lost their lives here can’t say the same thing.

Tales from the mind of Kristian

Visit the darkest crevices of my mind, dare to tread where many fear to go. You may find something interesting or you may find a mirror to your soul.
