still sick. worked the day through. left right before 5 - wanted to try to go see the Errol Morris docu, but came home and just could not do it. want to rest up so we can drive to Jtree tomorrow to camp and see the desert in bloom. truly one of the magical places on earth - the desert in spring. we called the ranger, who confirmed that most the camp sites were gone, but we got a cheapo hotel room in case we cant squeeze in somewhere. i will see the cactus flowers and breath that air.

Simon and i went there 2 days after we met and camped - i will write about that full moon and the still beauty we shared another time. I used to take my son there for Easter Sunday - we hunted for blooms.

took an imitrex so now i am stoney, but the headache will leave me.
we have friends from the UK that are supposed to meet us there tomorrow. really looking forward to it.

Simon is bustling about getting the gear ready - he loves camping - getting the firesticks, the sleeping bags, the tent pegs - every thing all just so. The mountain camp sites we love will open up for spring in a few weeks and we will head up the hill on a Friday after work - seeking the quiet and the misty views above and beyond the city, sweaty hikes, sitting in front of a fire pit just gazing. .

going to be a good spring, i think

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. -Albert Camus

Woke up with a freight train roaring through my head and body. made necessary calls, emails, took imitrix and checked out.
the worse part of a migraine(and there are a number of things to choose from) is the awful sense that one is wasting ones life and losing days
after such a brilliant weekend...
i am seriously thinking about botox for migraines. i have a friend who swears that it is helping her. she is a quasi invalid from years of unrelenting pain....
i am up now ,with the inevitable imitrex hang over.
