San Antonio - Day Four
Ceremonies, meetings, banquets... I am officially tired and ready to go home. Tomorrow will be church with Berinda, lunch with friends, dinner with other friends, and then time to pack up and head out of Dodge on a Monday morning flight (I originally published this with "Tuesday morning flight" -- my subconscious mind has been wrapped around Tuesday the whole trip). It's been a good trip, and so wonderful getting together with old friends; but I realized toward the end of the banquet tonight that it has taken an enormous amount of energy simply having conversations. As much as I wanted to be in the middle of everything, at the same time I wanted to be in a protected corner just watching, or maybe even home in bed watching it on TV. Part of that is simply the introvert in me; I know this. The other part is the frailty I still feel hanging around me. It's as if I am convalescing from a long illness and haven't yet got my "legs" back. That's why this is short, and I am going to bed now!
