Breaking Free

Two months have elapsed since I decided to “give in” to the desire to break free from the familiar rut I had been traveling for over two decades.

Almost everything has been sold, stored, given away or discarded. Unless something interferes, closing will occur next week.

And if all goes well, the K9s and I will begin our journey in a few days, heading out in search of new places to explore, hiking to our hearts’ content. 😀

It was on the return trip from taking yet another load to the storage unit that I was blessed with this spectacular lightshow.

Slip Sliding Away

I was getting used to watching my dreams pass me by,  justifying the denial by the clandestine trappings of self-imposed demands.

But one component of my life kept me from becoming satisfied with surrender – my K9s. Walking in the woods with Granger, Zoe and Aslan has kept the dust from settling over those dreams.
