Post-Butterfly Valley Blues

It's been over a week since our return from Butterfly Valley. The weather here in Budapest is cold and rainy. I read on the Internet it's still balmy down in the Valley. The past week found me sick with diarrhea of the worst kind for 3 1/2 days, perhaps a response to post-holiday vacation. We had such an amazing time in Turkey and now we're back to the headaches and stress and ongoing drudgery of life in Budapest. It isn't easy. Of course we have to get with it. Embrace it. Move forward, make money, get creative. Get back to Butterfly Valley.

All the beauty of life there is so irrelevant now. Any reflections on the good time we had there just bring on depression.

This is kind of too bad. Lucia took hundreds of pictures and we had plans to blog these and write all about our adventures. But this hasn't happened and to do it now would feel like so much wasted time.

But I can say this. My spaceship has landed on the moon. The Flash! animation piece I've been working on intermittently for months that demonstrates how a solar powered spaceship can lift off from the earth and travel to the moon without need for rockets has passed the first draft phase. This felt good and lifted me out of the grips of illness.
