Feeling listless and uninspired... and also as though I am standing on the tracks, just watching the train that is South Africa bearing down on me. Am I ready? I have no clue. I keep making lists and seem to be crossing things off as completed... but I have no confidence that, as the date of departure gets closer, I am prepared.

I had a "big salad" for lunch today. It's a specific salad at a specific restaurant and of course they don't list it as a "big salad". That was our little joke, taken from an episode of "Seinfeld". Every so often, one of us would say "I'm hungry for a big salad." and off we would go. Now, it's a reference that no one but me understands and so I went to the restaurant alone (which I HATE to do) and had my big salad.

So I went to paradise... alone. I saw many beautiful places and although the traveling to and fro exhausted me, I'm glad I went.
I learned that I don't like traveling alone, I do like driving a convertible and there aren't enough miles that you can put between you and your grief in order to forget - even just for a moment or two.
