5-20-2013 Cabin fever in the Badlands
After a whole night of wind and rain I woke up to… well, wind and rain! I have not made it out of the trailer this morning yet. I decided it would be a perfect day to organize myself a little. I am doing very well I have to say. Got rid of a whole box of unnecessary junk I brought. It is even hard to type with all the shakiness, the wind is brutal. I spent part time of the morning creating a memory wall with pictures from my past of people I love and I can never forget. It was a good exercise. A few tears here and there but overall a good positive feeling.
Despues de toda una noche de viento y lluvia me he levantado... con viento y lluvia. Creo que voy a pasar todo el dia en la caravana organizando todo un poco.
It is such a weird thing to be in a desert like place and it has not stopped raining for twelve hours. You would think I would start having a little of cabin fever but actually I am enjoying this time in my new home. Fortunately I have full internet connection through my cell phone, that helps.

Yesterday was a great day. For first time I was aware of the fact that I am by myself in a world full of opportunities. When I stop by the road and just stand, looking at the clouds, I felt the difference and the uniqueness of what I am doing. I had no guilt of taking my time, I had no schedule, I had nowhere to be, just being there hoping the sun would go through the clouds for a few seconds. I had my cameras and my thoughts with me. The reality of what I am doing is starting to hit me.
Ayer fue un dia muy bueno. Me di cuenta de verdad por primera vez que estoy solo en este viaje lleno de oportunidades. Cuando me pare en la carretera a observar las nubes entendi la unica oportunidad que estoy viviendo.
