The trickster gods have been in good moods recently. Life has been full of interesting surprises, unforeseen opportunities, and things that keep a smile on my face. The frustration of having my visas delayed for my new job has opened a whole world of opportunities that wouldn’t have been there if the visas had gone smoothly.
Tomorrow, early, much earlier than is comfortable, I head to Spain as a result of several of these unexpected and delightful opportunities. There I get to mix work with play, experience a new place, and get to know new friends. From there I head to Indonesia for my new job.
The visas still are not sorted, but it’s time to move, to see new things, to say, “Yes,” to what is in front of me.
Last time I moved to Asia I flew off into the sunset, heading east, out over the wide Pacific.
This time I chase the sunrise, seeking to lift the curtain of dawn and catch a glimpse of what’s behind it.
My last day in Vermont started with a fabulous rainbow. It seemed a good omen for the next phase of life.
I wish you all the best opportunities in the new year and in life with both the wisdom and courage to leap for them when they appear.
If I can, I will post from Spain, otherwise my next post will be from Indonesia.
