Well, I’m pulling up roots, packing up my stuff and heading to the east coast for a while. The flotsam and jetsam of my life keep pooling in disconnected piles all mashed up against each other. Today, I tried to take a picture of a butterfly, looked at pictures of my mother and found a pic of me in an old boyfriend’s VW bus. I think I started and stopped 20 different packing projects. My posts will probably be sporadic as I wrestle with life’s big question – why do I think all this stuff is me?

    Best wishes on your journeying! And also with your questioning!

      Thanks Barry – it’s a rollercoaster!

    It isn’t “you”…just things that remind you of your “old” you. I love history and memories. But that’s all it is.

    You are at the beginning of a great adventure. It’s just that you’re at the top of the highest ” OMG! I don’t want to do this ride!” hill on your roller coaster. You know the one. It makes your stomach do an amazing series of flip flops before you even move.

    Sooner or later you’ll be on the part of the ride that makes you yell out loud and laugh all the way in. (But I have to admit I’m going to miss having you next door!)

      Yes, you’re right – this is the uphill part of the climb. Can’t wait to start yelling!
