As you may have noticed from the recent Facebook posts, I’ve moved to the mountains! I see more animals daily than people. Am surrounded by forest in all directions, and wake up to mornings like this…
My 3 months living here have already taught me a lot. You’d be amazed at how much you can learn by observing nature, so I’m starting a series on the blog called Lessons from the Mountain.**
People often ask me, “Why?! Why would you move from San Francisco to the middle-of-nowhere?” The simplest and truest answer is because this is where I want to be right now.
2013 was an absolute whirlwind! I traveled to 8 countries and all over the States, lost my appendix in Panama, and started my own business. It was full throttle kind of year!
We all go through various seasons in our life, and each one is important and significant in its own way. With the time changes and my travel schedule, I spent most of last year in Spring or Summer climates, so I have been relishing winter.
Winter often gets a bad rap, especially this year with all the snow. I’ve seen numerous Facebook posts begging Spring to be here, so it seemed fitting to write a tribute hai ku on its last day in 2014.
Thank you, Winter love.
Ephemeral snow flakes.
Still black star-filled nights.
No matter what season of life this post finds you in, may you delight in it! Know that it has something to offer you and that the next season will come in right timing. Goodbye Winter. Hello Spring!
