Raw, adjective: 11. unprocessed or unevaluated: raw data
I'm fabulously behind in life, it seems. A quick week back home in SF digesting so much yoga and sweat, and now it's off to another time zone for more sweat, more yoga, more memories, and a few rare days with two women who share the same smile, the same last name, and the same DNA. There will most likely be toolbelts, running shoes and beaches involved. And there will most certainly be fire ants, sunburns, and muggy afternoon thunderstorms involved, too.
Internet connections there promise to be sketchy at best, so as much as I'd like to swamp you with bundt updates and Sarah Palin breakdowns and whatnot, I don't know if that'll happen. In the meantime, I'll leave you with two Hemingway chestnuts that've been heavy on my mind these few days, sandwiched between fog and early mornings and spinach salads and late-night cable car rides:
"The man who has begun to live more seriously within begins to live more simply without." And, "The world breaks us all. Afterward, some are stronger at the broken places."
Have a good weekend.
