Two days after returning to my normal life I got a heavy case of the blues. I was disappointed that the feelings created by such a fulfilling weekend couldn't at least last until the next weekend. As I am wont to do I delved into my psyche in search of the reason why ~ why did I feel so defeated after so much happiness and laugher, not to mention a highly successful business venture?
The answer came from one of my secret boyfriends, Chris In The Morning. Chris Stevens is a ex-con, philosopher, artist and disc jockey. That says nothing for his rugged good looks. Chris says things that make me think.
Always searching, Chris finds meaning in the simplest things, and reduces the complex to lessons with which we can all identify. I wish I could be so insightful and sometimes think it takes living in a small, remote, rustic town (Cicely, Alaska to be precise) to get to the bottom of life's big questions.
Back to my blues. I was feeling a little let down after the weekend. Everything went right, but after I came down from the high it all seemed so anticlimactic. It wasn't enough. Or was it too much? It was better than I'd hoped, but it left me wanting more. Enter Chris and his afinity for articulating what proved to be the truth I was looking for. It set me back on my path and allowed me to feel some sense of satisfaction. It explained what I was missing and reminded me of what's important.
Please take a few minutes to watch this piece from an episode of Northern Exposure. Perhaps it will speak to you as it did me. Perhaps not. Either way it's a fun bit of TV history.
