I have arrived in Colorado. (Well, two days ago actually, this was just my first chance to access email and will probably be the last until I hit Crow’s again on the 8th since I am paying $8.00/hr for this access time.) I arrived at the time share resort to find “Welcome Home” in large happy letters over the door. It seemed appropriate given my circumstances. I have settled in nicely and am in the process of doing my inner journey work. If you are interested in that work, I invite you to read the other entry titled “Centered And Focused.”
I feel like my walkabout is winding down. I’m making my way back across the country in the next few days to get back to Massachusetts in time for Yule. I’m realizing that what I had to let go of last month was not Massachusetts as my home, but the role that I played in the life I had led because it no longer fits. I am expecting to settle back down in New England when I finish this journey, which won’t be too far away now I think. It is said that you journey until you find yourself and then you journey home. I believe I have found who I am, now it’s a matter of determining how to express that in my work and play. This will constitute the journey home.
On a purely physical note, here are my plans. On the 7th I head back to Crow’s in Kansas City. On the 8th, it’s on to Keter’s in Cincinnati. On the 11th, I’m heading back to Bloomington to finish up my work with Daniel. Then on to my mom’s on about the 14th. Then I’ll be heading out to Detroit to meet a friend of Jesse’s from Cincinnati on the 17th. Then Chuck’s in Coudersport on the 18th. Then back to Daniel’s house in Lowell on the 19th. Just in time to make the various Yule holiday parties and rituals.
