I am packed and ready to go visit my friend Diane. She has a home on a small pond in southern New Hampshire. We arranged this visit when Diane was visiting me in Florida and I have been looking forward to it . . . Until I had Lyme disease.
I am still looking forward to seeing my friend of course. But she lives in the woods and we have always hiked there. Now I have images of ticks lurking on all vegetation.
We shall see. Will neuroticism take over and strand me in the cabin for the week? Will I be braver than that? Will any lingering effects (Although I feel fine now.) prevent me from keeping up with my most energetic friend?
