I have three weeks before I begin the archaeology project at Copan in Honduras. The ebb and flow of my relationship with Mira is becoming a little strained. I am a little worn out of Costa Rica. She has commitments here. I don’t. Every morning is beginning with a scold, every night a flicker of an argument. Maybe we need to walk our own paths for a week. Maybe we need to come back together a little fresh. I have also been working far too much here. I have a free internet connection and I am taking full advantage of it. Maybe I am taking too much advantage of it. I flipped Vagabond Journey.com upside down and now it is beginning to resemble a real website. I am worn out from this exertion. Too much time in front of a computer screen makes me a little quirky. Makes me feel a little less human. But I am happy working, though I know that all things can be taken to excess.
I am thinking about going down to Panama, look at the canal, pee in it maybe, then come on back to Costa Rica to meet up with Mira and go to work in Copan. My lungs are feeling a little tight here in Costa Rica. I am growing weary of living inside of a cage. I need to lean back and check out the sky, breathe deep, and make sure that everything is still beautiful. I know it is still beautiful. Thinking of Panama.
