It’s the second consecutive week we’ve been covered in ash. Or maybe the third. There’s a gap somewhere in my timeline that involved stressful planning of a class and my sister giving birth to my niece. The time continuum seems to be going back to normalcy this week, and I’m counting the days till the holidays arrive.
I was so out of touch with everything last week that I missed the fact that the ash has caused some severe damage south of Buenos Aires. I caught a glimpse of the news today and it looked pretty bad. Nature’s feisty lately, and I can’t help but wonder if it’s our fault or if it’s just the way things are. I’d like to think it’s the latter.
I wish I had time to take some shots. I wish there was sunlight so I could take some shots; I keep gazing longingly at the pictures from the last sunset I shot. But since everything seems to be conspiring against my time with the camera, I’ve decided to take it easy and focus on passing all my exams. Three weeks seem like a lot of time now, but with everything that’s coming up I know in no time I’ll be off the hook, free to get my life back. And I’m six months closer to my DSLR! Life just keeps getting better.
