So. Many. Transitions. How do we manage them all in our lives today? Mine seem acute right at this moment – moving from a Rainbow Gathering back into what is termed “Babylon”. So basically unplugged and in a different world for a couple of weeks back into a very plugged in, very tethered world.
This trip I have been on the road for 7 weeks…..each day much like the other, when traveling in the van. I joke I am going to put a perpetual calendar in the Roadtrek to tell me what day it is and what the date is. So different than life at home where the day it is determines the activity of the day. But both awesome and enjoyed, in their own ways. It’s just the transitions that take time for me and my brain. The living in the moment of either world works well, I have found, but the brain needs time to segue in and out of modes. At least mine does.
It’s a privilege to live in both these worlds. I take none of it for granted. Right now the van is parked outside of my son and his wife’s world and they have allowed the man child and I to step into their lives for a few days. We’ll celebrate the man child’s golden birthday here (14 on the 14th) with a few surprises his older brother has planned. Memories in the making. And I’ll continue to process the transitions in my brain while living fully in the moment. I don’t know how else to do it.
