Well, I’m back! And exhausted. My mind is whirring and my body is crying. The burn was, as usual, beyond words. It was exactly what I needed and not quite what I expected – as I expected it would be. Predicting a burn is never possible and each is its own unique experience.
Though my body weeps with exhaustion, I am lonely for my husband, who is still miles away dealing with the last remnants of the aftermath of the burn and will not return until the morning. So I cannot decide whether I should crash by myself in front of the television, or push the adrenaline just one inch further to go socialize with others.
More posts on the burn are to come in the next few days. In the meantime, I’m going to go seek comfort.
