As some of you may have noted, I have not been a very good blogging girl in the last few months. My life has been a storm of activity, with marketing The Red Kimono, finishing up my term with Ozarks Writers League and most of all, preparing for my move to Dallas in November.
I’ve decided to call this period “the storm before the calm.”
I need order in my life, perhaps because of the chaos I grew up with. And now, with packing and preparing to leave Fayetteville, my life is in a bit of disorder. Heck. It’s in A LOT of disorder. Though I am very much looking forward to new changes in my life–becoming a grandma, developing new relationships, discovering new places–there’s much unknown, which is a kind of chaos.
Scariest of all is leaving the very dear friends I’ve made in this area. It takes a long time to build such friendships, and I will miss them greatly.
But again, stormy though this time feels, I know the calm will follow. At least that’s what I keep telling myself.
