Adventure seeking. High speed, unpredictable chaos all wrapped up in a nice little ball of excitement. Adventures carry a high probability of knocking you off your feet and yet the thrill of something new propels you forward. A drive maybe? In life, I feel that there are many windows to adventuresome living. Some truly plunge-worthy while others serve only as a glimmer of a dream to be put into action some time in the very near future. Recognizing the right moment to leap can leave you feeling doubtful, foggy-headed and quite honestly a bit run down. This adventuresome living can be tiring, no?
Sometimes, you don't even see the adventure until it has passed you by--- hopefully sweeping you up in it. Spontaneous adventures can make the whole process oh-so much easier. Happenstance. Other adventures are a compilation of forethought, effort and a good dose of heartache.
One year ago today.
Thinking back to moving day, I feel overwhelmed. All those boxes, hugs goodbye and the leap into the unknown. Scary overwhelming and yet plunge-worthy for sure. You see, moving to Austin was a glimmer of a dream for a really looooong time. And then one day ---- it was reality.
What a year it has been. Hard times? You betcha. Moments of doubts? Uh-huh. Bits of fun? No way....
Adventuresome living? Why not.
Even though you left me...I am so glad that you guys are happy in Austin! But...summers aren't the same without you! Missing our May friends!
