Far from any soccer field, here's a flashback-Friday, as I continue to reflect on my time in #Alaska.
This was from my time living up in the remote bush in the Arctic. You can see a bit of the shack I stayed in when up the creek, gold mining in grizzly bear and mosquito country.
December brings time for reflections and nostalgia, before jumping into the goal setting mindset of a new year. When my son brought me this picture he'd found at his dad's, I couldn't help but look back at that much younger me on the 3-wheeler, and remember the wild ride of a life lived in the extremes and all the crazy and amazing things I've been able to do. I'll miss a lot of things about Alaska, but there's a lot I won't miss, like today, as I write, it's another dark 20 below zero Fahrenheit morning. Brutal, but I'll just pop some vitamin D and continue to plan for the new life ahead after my son graduates. No empty nest syndrome for me, as I'll be leaving the nest too - both of us off for new lives! Summer will bring new landscapes, opportunities, and soccer fields.
