The great home of the soul is the open road
–D.H. Lawrence

I’m interested in change, metamorphosis, exploring the shifts along the path. Some change falls in our laps, others we seek out. Some are challenging, others a thrilling or terrifying ride. I strive to embrace change, and live a little deeper, a bit wider, somewhat louder, definitely more fully.

I made a big change in 2014. My second grandchild was imminent, and because both children lived in the same city 1000 miles away, it was time for us to join them, leaving our home town of 32 years to create a whole new adventure. We packed up a life, put everything in a variety of storage places, sold a house, and moved – six months apart from each other, making it more complicated.

I re-invented my life and re-oriented myself to new surroundings, experiencing a journey that went from scary to surprising, from confusing to creative – but fun, mostly fun.

Why a blog? To take note, look around, examine, and then write write write. And finally, after so many years of scribbling in private notebooks, to put it out where people can read it. Overcoming that discomfort and fear is, for me, the ultimate metamorphosis.
