Again my time in America draws to a close. What a roller coaster trip on so many levels! How amazing lucky this girl is. So many challenges and blessings wrapped up in one. Such a huge thank you to the very many friends who have supported, nurtured & hosted me during this expedition of the spirit. Your belief in me & mine in you is soul food ༻
The rest of the world beckons ~ who knows what lies ahead*. There’s often the expectation that I’ll go back to London, and maybe I shall. But having spent over a year outside of major cities I’m happy for a greener life. My old life is long gone, so there is nothing to step neatly back into. Whatever I make, I create anew. I’d love to grow some food (me – did I really say that?) and really, all I need is clean water, WIFI & superfood deliveries to be happy. It’s time to visit Camilla in Siwa methinks, do some private cleanses in India, Winter in Ibiza, Christmas with the Stevens & photography in Yemen – Oyster (not card) comes to mind. *It will be massive, of that I have no doubt.
It’s not easy to leave (to be missing Epic Eden!) – when your heart is so firmly embedded somewhere, it’s a wrench to let go. America pulls me back again and again like the strongest magnet. Being elsewhere is like the toughest break-up ever. The feeling that you’re in the ‘wrong’ time-zone, on the ‘wrong’ side of the road. But, I will come quietly – it’s gentler that way..
I am back in touch w/ Yvonne again. Yesterday she said to me “You need to live a life of internal integrity, & I think that everything that you go through is always attempting to aim you in that direction. It isn’t like that for everyone, but I don’t think that you are going to be allowed to get away with anything less” Hmm! As long as there is chocolate..
