“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.”
~ Anatole France
By the time you read this I’ll be out on the road. Me, my husband, our trusty old ute… Who doesn’t love a road trip?
This trip is timely for me after a big few weeks of life at its most unrelenting.
First an unexpected illness -reminding me of my vulnerability, then my Nana’s slow march towards the end of her days, my spiritual retreat and all of my students to look after, a birthday, family stuff, other people’s stuff, a business to run, a farm to run, a weekend workshop intensive with some of my business mentors, and out of the blue the death of an old friend who took her own life after a long battle with depression.
Breathe in, breathe out. Life. Wow, what a ride!
So, a road trip for me…
Just a few days of wandering along country roads, smelling the fresh air, standing on the earth and reconnecting with myself and my beloved man.
Along the way we’ll pick up my windmill, which Ben gave me as a birthday gift, and which is still sitting on someone else’s farm. Along the way I’ll gather myself back together. Along the way I’ll say goodbye to my friend. Along the way I’ll find life’s rhythm again.
Who doesn’t love a road trip? Time for talking, and for just watching the world slide by. Little towns to explore, new bakeries to try, treasures to find, adventures to be had.
And something else. No office phone. No internet. No desk calling me to sit down and catch up on all my work (and trust me, I am WAY behind…). Time for me. Heart-healingly spacious time for breathing and feeling and just BEing in the moment.
If my iphone works, I’ll blog you an update. Otherwise you’ll just have to settle for me toasting your good health at the local pub. Bless ♥ xx
