If you do not stand in the space where the Holy lives, fear and doubt can creep in and unsettle you. Suddenly, just prior to my departure, I am distracted and not in a place of calm. Instead I find myself procrastinating because I have to make some decisions about what to pack, what to leave, how to best organize myself. Some days I think having a life partner would be helpful in these moments so that I could be spurred on.
Regardless, I find myself still excited. I wonder if my photos will turn out, if I will be safe, if my belongings will get stolen or lost, and a half dozen other whispers to knock me off my centre. Funny how that goes.
Perhaps I should just head to bed so that those voices are silenced. In about 36 hours I will be heading out on an adventure that you can follow here. I decided not to start a new blog since the one I was trying out did not jive with my new i-pad. I released my need to try something new at this late date.
I shush the nay-sayer voices and know that all will be very well.
