I’ve had some pretty big downs these past few years. But I’ve had some pretty big ups, too. 

There were a couple of downs that felt like they were going to end me, days when I wondered if I’d bother to wake up the next morning, days when I considered tossing my camera gear into this river or off that cliff and just walking into the forest or desert until I stopped. 

But there have been the most brilliant and remarkable days as well. On balance, I suppose there have been more of the latter than the former, and though it’s hard to remember the top of the mountain from the bottom of the pit, I think it might take a few of the really terrible days to appreciate the excellent ones.

But I think it takes the middling days to understand that everything is cycles.

I was going to write some more about the days in the middle, but I have to go take care of some chores now.
