While far from drastic, I've recently come to a realization that will lead to changes in my life. I'd seen it coming for some time, but I was stubborn in accepting it. My way of dealing with it came in the form of a lengthy bender... a sober one.
Beginning with a trip to Arizona last month, I've been on a fishing tear over the past few weeks. It hasn't been so much an escape, as an immersion into something that I find enjoyment in. Of course that is probably a mindset shared by the addicts of truly harmful vices. I don't know what the future will bring, but I know that I currently have the opportunity to fish, perhaps more opportunity to do so than I may ever have again, and I've been taking full advantage of that.
The accompanying photos document some of my recent travels, the benefits that come with being marginally employed, and memorable days spent on the water with friends.
