The loneliness of the Christian results from his walk with God in an ungodly world, a walk that must often take him away from the fellowship of good Christians as well as from that of the unregenerate world. His God-given instincts cry out for companionship with others of his kind, others who can understand his longings, his aspirations, his absorption in the love of Christ; and because within his circle of friends there are so few who share his inner experiences he is forced to walk alone. – A.W. Tozer

You may now commence with rabid jealousy and envy. :-)
Lord what a day. The phones ran nonstop with the ultimate insult being the last call, where the guy wanted me to check over 50 names. And he had a cold. I finally took my meal break and when I’m putting my coat on the phone rings again.
I don’t think I ever ran so fast in my life.
What I wouldn’t do to have a beautiful girl like that sitting across me at a Starbucks, just gazing at me all lovey dovey with that angelic, “Can I come sit by you and just be adorable?” smile of hers. God my heart aches for an experience like that.
Some women, they just have it. I don’t know what “it” is exactly, and I couldn’t really describe it in so many words, but she’s got it. Girls I typically see around me? They don’t got it. And you really need to have it, before you can get it, know what i izz sezzin’?
It’s like the mighty Bruce Campbell says:
I’ve been exploring cabin rental possibilities in Colorado for a getaway this April, but I’m really inclined to just drive somewhere and save on the costs of flight and a car rental if I could. My two favorite mountain destinations within driving distance are the Adirondacks upstate and White Mountain in New Hampshire.
Maybe a I’m a bit posh in my tastes, but I don’t think it’s asking too much for a secluded cottage/cabin/chalet to have a fireplace, high speed internet access, and a hot tub. Oh and a mountain view where every window you look out of resembles a post card. See? I’m barely asking for a roof here.
Apologies for using the word “posh” by the way. I’ve been watching a lot of British shows lately.
Anyhoo, while these kinds of cabin rentals are a dime a dozen in Tennessee (and Colorado), they’re pretty hard to come by in places like the Adirondacks or the White Mountain region, at least where they’re not insanely priced. I’ve seen plenty of rentals in Colorado for less than $200 a night, but they seem to START at $400 a night in places like Lake Placid, which is one of my favorite destinations in upstate New York. And those are just the ones where the only view you get is a thick, winding forest that looks like something out of Middle Earth.
Boo to that. I see enough trees every day, it’s the MOUNTAINS I want. Big, sweeping views of purple mountains above fruited plains, and all that jazz. Maybe some kind soul living in New England or upstate New York (yeah, you know who you are) can point me to some lodging possibilities for under $200 a night? This war weary traveling soul would thank you and bring you chocolates if I can. :-D
The AFTER picture would be me lying on the ground, battered and bruised, but with a really big smile on my face. :-D
Been going through some of my old mountain photos recently, but this continues to be one of my favorites (from Telluride,) particularly because the view here is from a parking lot. O_O
