Conquering the bear at Tom and Kim's house in Wasilla, Alaska!
I told you that I was not done sharing my experience in Alaska with you. So much transpired: so much beauty, so much joy, so many new friends. This trip is something I will carry with me forever. And to be quite honest, I am having a very difficult time being back in New York. It has been a struggle for me, and I am working to not allow it to get the best of me, but it really isn't easy--to put it mildly. It's one of those things where nothing seems to taste quite right--figuratively speaking. Everything is bland, unseasoned, lacking spice. Yesterday I tweeted:
@lbergh You have no idea how much I feel like a fish (salmon or halibut) out of water! Gasping for air right now.
Having said that, I do have an expectation that the best is yet to come. I so often say that, and I will walk in that faith. Sometimes it's easy to believe it for someone else but more difficult to believe for oneself. Well, I'm believing it for me: Adrienne! In the meantime, I do get some enjoyment out of sharing Alaska with all of you. So enjoy the journey:
