Morning light

9 more days. I'm sure I'm ready to go, but at the same time, I'm totally sure I've forgotten something essential. I can somehow manage to believe two opposite things at the same time, but I'm chewing my nails over it.

Remembering an early morning at the rest area looking over Pinto Lake in the Chilcotin calms me. The whispering silence! The air; pine-scented, fresh and clean, with just a hint, a remembrance of road dust! The slight chill in the shadows, and the gentle warmth of the early sun! The road ahead, the road back; been there, going to go there, and it will all be good! Ah!

There will be more mornings like this. And sunny afternoons. And sunsets over Georgia Strait. Yes, the road ahead looks good.

9 more days and I'll be on the ferry.


  1. I just figured out that you're relocating. I hope it will be an easy move and I'm sure things will work out well. It's difficult to pack up and move on after spending a lot of time in one place, but it doesn't take all that long to feel good about being in a new location. Actually, I find it a lot easier to do these days. My home is wherever the dogs and I happen to be hanging out. Good luck with your move!

  2. I hope the move goes well and that the new place feels like home when you walk through the door. We moved for the zillionth time in August. The new house felt like home right away. Such a comfort.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
