86 Months: Aug 8, 2021

By August 8, 2021 Journey

“When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.”


Two months ago I was counting the days until I could be back on the boat dock at the lake after a 2 year hiatus, with the only eagerly awaited change being to escape the heat. One month ago I spontaneously boarded an airplane traveling north to my original home to see if I was ready to return after a 10 year diversion. One week ago I arrived at the lake. Two days ago I had a new home ready to become mine, and my old home the aspiration of multiple others ready to make it theirs. One month from now I will start a new chapter, in a new place, that is part of an old place. A whirlwind of unplanned chaos waiting for the pieces to fall back into place, old patterns soon to be broken, new patterns waiting to emerge. I am uncharacteristically calm, for tonight I know that I can go to the boat dock. The lake. Two fingers of bourbon. The sunset. New adventures just over the horizon. 86 months have passed. I am ready for more change.

    My divided heart, joy and sadness, prepare for you to leave “home” yet return “home”. Sadness connected us 86 months ago, JOY and love will connect us forever ?
