Gradual Progress


Day 4 in paradise, cherishing time with family and looking forward to ushering in 2019 with a tan. 

Several people have asked if I plan on writing everyday on this trip, and whether I’ll continue the MoaT past my original goal of 365 straight days. The answer’s yes to both, though I’m embracing the aloha spirit and leaving the surface waters of my neuroses undisturbed, just for a little while anyway. 

I’m enjoying this time of relaxation, reflection, and recovery, and a Buddhist proverb comes to mind as I’m writing this - if we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking. If nothing else, after all these years of trial and error and gradual progress, I’m confident that my aim is true.
