You're Not Dead, Yet.

Brugge, Belgium

It was a beautiful day yesterday.

As I suspected, the Miro was closed because it was Monday. So yesterday I just walked and walked and walked. It was gorgeous. You can walk this whole city which I love. It was really easy to just get lost in the streets.. many of them are residential and quiet. i found myself on these streets the most because often i'd be the only one on them. It was very peaceful. On one of the streets I found a pub. I was thirsty because it was very warm so I stopped for a cold beverage. The owner ended up coming outside and talking to me for a bit about my trip. When I told him I had been traveling around Europe for 5 weeks now, he replied: "Oh!! You're not dead, yet!" and laughed. Haha, what did that mean??!! I'm not dead YET?! But after I left and started thinking about what he said. I thought it was a really funny thing to say and I'm not sure he meant it the way it came out....but just thinking about it.... it's true. I'm not dead....yet. There is still time.

I spent the afternoon sitting in the sun on the grass by a great windmill reading my book. There were lots of people out riding bicycles, taking walks, walking their dogs.

At this point in my trip, i think it's time to slow down and relax a bit. I don't feel a lot of pressure to "see" or "do" ...yes, there are things i still want, but I don't feel bad if I never get to them.

I think I'll be going to France tomorrow.
