Yeah, it's been a bit. I just noted the last time I posted was after my Rockville trip for the workshop. Since then, I've been to California and back, finished up with the kids' camp, and am now just getting back into life as I know it. Summer will transition to autumn soon.
California was....awesome. Isn't it always? Well, for me, anyway. I spent time with family, good quality time with my kids, ate good food and tasted good wine. Oh, as I was leaving I got to view the eclipse as I waited for my flight back home.
Coming home...sigh Where is home anyway? I'm still fine tuning how I exist between two worlds. That's not quite right. They're the same world, but feel so different. When I'm in California, when I'm with the family...it's so familiar, so grounded and heartfelt. Yet...the groundedness is a bit of an illusion (maybe that's true across the board), no? This is where I reside now...here in Virginia. This is where I need to sink in. But yet...oy... I guess what I'm getting at, is how challenging I find allowing for all my experiences and moving into a bigger space. Can I see myself as bi-coastal? Can I feel that my home is where ever my heart is at any given moment? It's a concept worth exploring...to open up and appreciate it all.
