A puncture is found

Finally; a dry day and the time to go leak hunting. And what do I find? A puncture in the Etrnabond taped seam right above the overcab leak damage. Hallelujah - I found the leak! It appears a tree limb has punctured the tape. When I pressed the spot I found water under the tape. It didn't take long to add a patch to this spot. Now to await the next storm - coming soon...

Relive Your Traumas

I suppose you have to relive your traumas in a way that is somewhat controlled and contained in order to move on from them. Some things you can walk quickly away from and never look back and other things bid you look again and again until you see something of the truth of them. I believe you have to let yourself remember and relive, that you have to find a way to settle with your past because you and it are always going to occupy the same headspace - you cannot separate yourself from anything you have ever done or seen or thought. You have to be able to look at the elements of the past without flinching and I believe that sometimes takes a few kicks at the cat. Or it does for me, anyway. It doesn't change anything - but it makes it easier to be comfortable in my skin.
