Finally we are both retired and ready for changes and adventures. We are setting off on a road trip for three months with a vague idea of where we are going and this is a journal of our travel. You are welcome to join us and take what you want. Bridget will write sometimes and Kathleen will write sometimes. There will be photographs, maybe videos. (We are brand new at blogging so we’ll see how much we want to learn.) For some of our travel we (Kathleen) will be researching genealogy and will write up whatever is interesting (probably only of interest to family).
We have a couple of weeks to prepare and get ready and may write about those thrills, trials, and tribulations.
Many different strands of your past experience begin to weave together until gradually the new direction announces itself. Its voice is sure with the inevitability of the truth. When your life-decisions emerge in this way from the matrix of your experience, they warrant your trust and commitment. When you can choose in this way, you move gracefully within the deeper rhythm of your soul. The geography of your destiny is always clearer to the eye of your soul than to the intentions and needs of your surface mind.
