Forgotten Remembrances

The last Camino marker
at Faro Fisterra 
 As I was walking today I heard "Walk on the Ocean" by Toad the Wet Sprocket.  This song always reminds me of sitting on the rocks near Faro Fisterra watching the sun set on my second Camino.  As I was brought back in time by the music I realized that I hadn't posted a second Camino anniversary post.  Not only had I forgotten but I'd missed it by nearly two months.  This bummed me out.  My two Caminos (and now, to some extent, my Appalachian Trail hike) were very important events in my life right up there with meeting the Wife and our marriage.  To forget them ... not a good thing.

This is just another symptom of where I've been since I returned from the Appalachian Trail.  As I mentioned in June, I have not been present since I've gotten back and the year since my return has done little to fix it.

I am disconnected from my life and now I am missing things important to me. I am losing connection in my life. Something needs to change soon before I'm too far gone.
