Sometimes you just need to go outside and chase the dog around even though it's 100 degrees with the sun glaring at you oppressively to keep from losing your sanity.
Sometimes you need that extra (large) cup of coffee in the morning (again).
Sometimes you need to listen and dance to the same happy melodies over and over to get through the low times.
The times when your heart longs for the mountains and rivers, for the dust coating on your skin of that dried and warm dirt trail your shoes knew so well, for familiar faces you have known through all seasons.
For the times when you long for it but it's hundreds of miles away.
Sometimes, you just have to sit back and be thankful for the love by your side and the sweat on your brow.
You have to keep that knowing that as you plow ahead, as you dig deeper, the lost unfamiliarity eventually becomes tried and true.
