There are places in my life that center me and help me move forward. This one jumped out at me this morning from a file of photos that I had just used to send a birthday greeting to a friend on Facebook.
It's no secret. I wish I could be home this summer, but the only way that was going to happen was if it could have been with the ease of clicking my ruby red slippers together. International travel is not that simple. International travel with your pet doubles the difficulty.
And so, Sammie Cat and I are in New Orleans this summer gathering the puzzle pieces of our lives together in a slower, more relaxed, and unhurried way. We have time to think, ponder, move the pieces around here and there, and then see how they all best fit together. We already know, even thought the pieces may fit in the moment; it just takes one to go sailing through the air for everything to change. We're ready!
