the first semester of my quest toward a master's degree is COMPLETE!
colorado is quiet.
this is not news to my spirit.
it is for this solace and peace that I chose this locale for work on my advanced degree. I now know what sort of day-to-day life needs to look like to make certain school gets done well alongside regular life tasks.
I can complete this degree.
it was unknown and untouchable before this past handful of months.
it now is a reality and somewhat known in its needs and rhythm.
writing a personal narrative for one of my final assignments for one my classes, I sat and contemplated a number...
the number of moves I have made since my world expanded quite literally. difficult to believe for me and for you, I would imagine, as well.
searching for "home".
searching for safe spaces to "become".
to be honest, I have no indication that this search will cease anytime soon. I do not necessarily plan to keep moving locations as much as I have this past 10 years or so,
but I will continue to seek out spots where I feel engaged, alive, challenged, and safe in spirit.
I certainly hope that my search for identity never ceases to be a quest of mine.
this next physical move, whenever it happens, I can tell you, will be with laser clear focus on a newly found vision for a path for which I have seen in the distance for some time and now is just within arms reach.
