Journal Entry 03.28.2015
What a turbulent week across the world! Plane crashes, floods, tornadoes, mudslides, volcanic eruptions, et al.
Our local weather has gone from winter to spring in two days. On Monday and Tuesday, there was snow on the hills outside of town. Today, the temperatures were in the high 70’s and the flowers were blooming accordingly. I managed to get the mower through some already long, damp grass to clean up the garden a wee bit.
Personally, I feel like I’m in kind of a holding pattern. Not really “going” anywhere. I was quite tired all week and several of my co-workers noted their difficulties in getting sleep, as well. Downloads were hitting my body as I rested each night, with my body heating up and releasing still more “stuff” as a result.
And yet… I feel “happy”, light… freed somehow from worries of the future despite the gloom and doom on the international world scene.
I’m checking into the possibility of retiring as an expat, to another country. Short of living in a trailer or a tiny apartment here, retirement elsewhere, most likely Central or South America is appealing. Keeping my options open for the time being as more developments unfold.
Time to paint. I have two portraits waiting completion… so must get back to them. And more ideas for landscapes, etc.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend.
Hugs and kisses,
