This is a time of straddling two, if not three worlds. Certainly the one in which I currently live, also the one to which I'll be going, but also the past which seems to hang over the two, defining them, encouraging them. What can I do with what came before? What am I doing now, what am I planning with what has been given to me and what I've learned? There is excitement and perhaps a small amount of healthy anxiety, something to give a fervency to the endeavor. What matters in my life? Am I living that and am I poised to live it beyond? These times of transition can be wonderful times to reflect on this, periods of chaotic decompression where possibility lives. And it can be a challenge to swim in the possibility, a space without definition, uncertain and insecure. So for the next few months, I will try to find comfort in this place that has none of the elements of comfort contained within it. Living in the stirred dwellings of beginning.
