|From my windowsill in Berlin|
For the past 5 years, my blog has been off and on, while I changed the focus of my life: family and caregiving took centre stage. So many other things faded into the background, not just in what I blogged about, but in practically everything I did, thought and felt.
Now, as I am coping with two significant losses, I am starting to shift my focus again. Grief has its own timetable, of course, and who knows what lessons it still has in store for me, but action has always helped me deal with depression.
My most recent change in my work situation is a refreshing and well-suited to me, and I am so grateful for the opportunity.
It's funny, I might have thought upon my return from Europe that I might like a career in travel, and here I find myself working as a travel agent.
I never dreamed when I left Vancouver that I would not return, I am living in a small town that I am surprised to find actually suits me.
I also couldn't have imagined that my blog would go silent for long stretches, but that's life.
And here I am at a crossroads again. There are new paths to choose, A new me to discover.
