Random Morning Thoughts
Given the fact that I am barely awake due to an hour being spirited away last night, I think I’ll pass on reflections today. Instead, I’m going to download all those photos of white sprinter vans sent to me by world travelers. May you feel blissful in the sunshine today. Have an awesome day!
Disclaimer required by my grad school program: I am not your therapist, but I am seeing clients at this time at Comprehensive Healthcare in White Salmon. In the meantime, I am your weather forecaster. Take everything I say with a grain of salt, and consult with your actual therapist about your mental health issues. One other thing: I plan to keep doing this forecast indefinitely. Forecasting and counseling are both deeply meaningful and nourishing to me.
