Hi Open,

Thanks for your support! I was definitely in the thick of it all! It seems that a hike to the peak of one of the mountains around the city where I am currently staying kicked off a whole lot of stuff, but meanwhile some of the intensity has subsided, which is quite a relief. Though a part of me is already bracing for whatever next wave of density is going to hit Slightly Smiling. This song I came across today captures the feelings quite well....

Walkin blindly on a path without an end

Then the morning comes and leads me out again

And it brings it all back to me

And then this one from the same artist!
