This year has been one of great change. This winter I logged off for a bit following a year of looking inward and connecting more with what is truly important. Family, health, simplifying. As much as I enjoy blogging I found that what I truly needed was time to myself for awhile.
That, and I simply had nothing to say.
Instead of adventures with birds, road trips and hikes into the hinterlands my time of late has been spent studying, journaling and holding deep conversations about the past, the future and the present.
My past adventures were such fun and I promise new adventures to come. However, my outdoor adventures were vastly different from what I'm doing now - meditating, looking inward and working to make necessary changes. That has been my new adventure. A more quiet, reflective adventure. I confess it has been challenging but most rewarding.
I've relished the challenge. Sought the challenge. Invited the challenge.
So my blog has been quiet. I'm saving up. I'm absorbing, looking at things with new eyes, recharging my batteries. I'm living.
