I am back in New Hampshire, after having trimmed two days each off the start and the end of my visit to Colorado. It was a gamble, traveling to a locale mere miles from a wildfire that has now consumed 66,000 acres. For most of my stay the portable air purifier and the masks seemed to provide adequate protection, but once that cloud of ash and smoke blew in, I decided that cutting my trip short was the only sensible option.
Home forty eight hours and decompressing from more than just a vacation; I’m a bit lost and inarticulate to boot. By tomorrow, I hope to find both bearings and words.
