July 4th was yesterday. I didn't go out for a fireworks show, as I went out the night before. There were however, a lot of amateur displays happening not far from my neighborhood. It was actually a continuous series of explosions, that went into the morning. I guess people were getting it out of their systems.

Celebrating Independence Day seems weird with everything going on.

I am away right now. It has its pros and cons – I'm away from the normal sources of stress, but there are some new, temporary ones. But those new ones tend to outweigh the old ones, I find. Routine change is important.

It's sunny here, and (more or less) warm. The water is beautiful, and pleasant though it's the cold Atlantic. It's great to see the sand, ocean sand, again.

This is a luxury, but in a way it's also a necessity. The getting away part, that is. A change in routine, a few days someplace else, or just doing something different. It can take on lots of forms, but it's important to try for once in a while.

I built a fire last night, and another one this evening. I have a lot of twigs and branches that have accumulated. It's nice to build a fire, but it's also nice to get rid of this sort of yard debris. Just putting it at the curb seems like a waste.

I'm trying to head towards getting rid of my pile of wood, since I'm looking to have a fence put up eventually, and could use the room. So I've been making it a point to have a fire a little more often. Luckily, it's been damp out lately, so that hasn't been a huge issue.
