Safely Safe....

This is just a quick check-in.

I did arrive safely, still have jet lag and haven't been shopping yet. :)

I'm looking forward to some shopping later this weekend.

As most know though, this isn't entirely a pleasure trip. I've been engaged in many necessary conversations, evaluating things, looking at things a new way and trying to get back in balance. It's happening, even though at times it feels a little painful.

It's like going to the chiropractor. It hurts like the devil during the treatment but feels so much better afterward.

Many things will be different when I get back. Not to detail all of it now but there are definite changes in my world.

Hope everyone is doing well. Let me know. Say something. I haven't been able to read blogs with the exception of a few things a friend has emailed to me. I gave her my password and she gets on my Google Reader, chooses a few and sends them to me. When I get back, I'll catch up.. and I promise to not make comments on old posts unless something really strikes me so much that I have to say something.

Be well! :)

oh Chani - I have been wondering what it was like when you stepped outside for the first time - the sights, the sounds, the smells. So glad you are there and I can't wait to hear about it.

Can't wait to hear of your "adjustments" on this most important of journeys.

Blessed be! Life is good.

What an adventure, inner and outer. How well do you speak/write the language? How did you learn it?
