“If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Today I am taking a moment to remember the great things Martin Luther King Jr. did for our country and his fellow-man.  With all that is going on in my life, this quote is especially poignant!

Around The Bend


The Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus was a self-taught pioneer of wisdom who is famous for his insistence on ever-present change in the universe.  He is credited with the following familiar sayings:

Everything flows, nothing stands still.

Nothing endures but change.

You could not step twice into the same river; for other waters are ever flowing on to you.

I can attest to the truth of his philosophy!  As I mentioned in my post Rotating Around the Sun, there have been so many changes for me in the last year.  Now another big one is coming around the bend.

When I wrote that post I mentioned that another short move was happening at the end of the month… Well it really shouldn’t be a surprise by now, but things have changed yet again.

I am both saddened and excited to say that at the end of January, after six months in California, Pippi, Squirt, and I will be packing up and moving back to the swamp-land that I call home… South Florida.

If I am being honest, I really couldn’t see myself staying here forever.  California is beautiful and interesting and I will miss the unique desert landscape and the mountains for sure… But I won’t miss the crazy temperatures and the dryness!  It will be nice to be closer to my family again, where everything is green, warm, and humid. 😛  (Also, it will be nice to go back to not having to pay any state taxes 😉 )

Two cross-country moves in the span of six months probably sounds like craziness… And it really kind of is… But trust me when I say that I have studied all the pros and cons and this is my best move for the time being.

After the big move I am not sure what will be in store for me… I am not sure that I will stay in Florida permanently or that California has seen the last of me 😛  Much like Heraclitus, the only thing that I am really certain of is that there will be change!
