It's been awhile...

"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged
to find the ways in which you, yourself, have altered."

~ Nelson Mandela

Hello, dear friends,

It seems that through a little bit of luck

and the assistance of a very generous spirit,

I am back again.

My blogging was truncated when I left my home of 16 years

and set off for new adventures,

leaving behind the technology

that had enabled me to blog in the first place.

Starting over.

There is such freedom in those words.

My heart swelled with it.

Now it is a year later (almost),

and my life has taken a wondrous turn.

I have moved again, to a tiny house in the country,

sitting on 10 lovely wooded acres.

I am surrounded by green earth and ever-changing skies.

How have I changed through this process?

I am more centered and confident in my abilities.

I am no longer held back by fear or doubt.

I know that all change must come from within

and is then reflected without.

And I know now that it is never too late.

Things happen in their own time,

and we must be aware, open and accepting

when they come knocking on the front door.

Every change comes bearing a gift.

All we need to do is accept it.

Until next time,
