I digress ...
Waxing Nearly full moon in my new neighborhood. Is it really a neighborhood if cougar and bear live there too?
I digress. I hope you don't get the impression that all of a sudden I decided to move West. Rather this had been in the works ( on the back burner at least) for 12 years. Recently all the signs from the heavens showed that it was time to go. So I did a scouting mission last October. A trip on the Empire Builder with Amtrak and my mom. It went well for making connections ( I met my guardian angels Melissa and Nancy ) , fact finding and I was deleted from the will for being bossy by my mother. Then came months of continuing education and endless forms to get professional licenses in another state. Finally interviews started at the end of April and 15 planes later I was finally blessed with a job that suited my skills and was in the location I had been dreaming of . I would like to think the whole process was spur of the moment and I just loaded the dogs into the car. Hardly spontaneous but at least now a reality. So my first weekend with the moon rising in the East I had to be grateful for the many steps that had gone right in the process of bringing my life long dream to fruition.
A beautiful sunset from the window of the regional jet. High over the Chicago area we are treated to a gorgeous sunset as we ponder the small amount of airplane between the inside and the 40,000 feet to the ground outside. You guessed it . I am not that good at flying.
