Back to Litigating

11 January 2008 | Tucson
Keith, mid January, 2008
What more can I say except that I'll write again when I go back on the sailing adventure.

...Except this. In the meantime, I'm back to the litigation adventure. Finishing the existing cases and starting to shut er down. I have been taking on a few short term things, but I'm going to stop doing that too. It's hard to leave in certain ways.

The picture is from my first trip on Tropical Dreamer in October of 2007. The intercoastal waterway from Annapolis to Oriental, NC. I was on the water early that morning as the sun came up. I seem to be having fun according to the look on my face.

This morning I am in my kitchen along the foothills of northern, Tucson, Arizona. I am similarly awaiting the sunrise. Then going to pick up the Bounder from the shop later this morning (I'm getting it ready for the long trip this summer) and then I'll head into work.

I have a nice view from this stool of the city lights below and the growing light above. The city has been covered by fog some recent mornings, which is unusual for the desert in my experience. And we have had quite a lot of rain fall this winter, I think. The wash has been running for weeks. Jake loves that. He is a major water dog.

It is 6:48 a.m. The sun doesn't fully come up for another hour or so. It is beginning to get a very beautiful blue in the east as the sun rises behind the mountains surrounding this valley. I like to be outside walking the dogs then. Jake is nudging my arm to say they want to experience the morning too. Anne growls lightly in affirmation. I've just made coffee and set out the medications and vitamin, so we're cleared for take off.

I presently walk them every day. This will be a challenge on the water, of course. I try and take them on a walk where they can run free if possible. Golden Retrievers are positive, good natured sporting dogs. They love to run and explore and be active. They also love to sleep a lot. I want to be more like that.
