Changes in the Wind

Life seems for me to be full of twists and turns.

It has been four months since I embarked on my journey traveling full time.
My journey has been everything I have ever dreamed of...

Except it has not been long enough ..... nor have I traveled far enough.

I experienced incredible anticipation for what would unfold in each and every day.

I have experienced sunrises and sunsets that so moved me they have taken my breath away and leaving me wordless....
And humbled...

I've met new friends and felt as if I had known them forever.  The bonds formed with those who live  and love to wander seems instant and deep.

 I have challenged myself and grown.

When I started this journey this quote became one of my inspirations....

I worked hard to make my dreams come true and my dreams have become reality.  But life is a changing adventure and I find myself adjusting to a new reality.  So I am working on plans that encompass all that I love.  And I promise that it will still be filled with adventure. 

When I first got the telephone call from home that would alter my life, this posted on my Facebook....

I'M not laughing

But I embracing the changes in my life

One quote that I have pondered at many points in my life is a quote by Helen Keller

The words seem unfinished....  until now.

My understanding of these words for today tell me life is unfinished... I can choose to make it a great adventure in many, many ways.  It may not always be how I would like, but the choice for me is to live life fully....every single day.   

How it plays out is up to me.  

While my journey takes me in along a fork in the road I will be living in a three generational household with people you have grown to know as well.  My Auntie, Granddaughter and I are busy reorganizing a house to fit our needs and lives.   

Life continues to be full of adventure. 

I can't wait to see the next installment of .... AS THE WORLD TURNS.


  1. You bend and adjust and find the "new" sustainable way... or the wind blows you down. You take care of yourself as well. Your ~Self~ is of as great an importance as anyone else.

    Those who want and need that help from you must come to realize that you as well must be cared for.

    The troubles always find an end and tomorrow is another day.

  2. This turn in the road will be a good thing, for people are the most important thing in our lives. There are many kinds of adventures, and knowing you, your life will still be adventurous.

    1. I agree, people are important!! Adventure seems to be all around if we but look....

  3. Your pictures here are gorgeous and such a testament to all you have seen and experienced. I hope this change will be just as fulfilling for you.

  4. Beautiful photos -- you are just side stepping into new adventures right now...

  5. Good Luck on weathering the changes in your life, I am sure you will still be able to travel with your Auntie and granddaughter, just not everyday.

  6. Good luck with all your new adventures. Lovely photos, wish they were bigger to get the full effect. Have fun.

  7. The photo's will enlarge with a single click left click. If there is something I can do that will let me enlarge them further let me know. By keeping them the medium size on the blog it allows them to load faster for those with limited band width on the road.

  8. Your life is always full of interesting changes. It seems that all of you have important things to offer each other. How wonderful! Just make sure to nurture your dreams too.

  9. I wish all the best to you and your family. I know you will make the best of this and do whatever is expected. Your travels brought lots of new things your way and to keep you geared in the right direction when the time is right once again.

    I wish you the best.

  10. Hey Karen, beautiful sister. Let's talk soon. I wish the best for you in this transition, whatever has inspired it. You've always got a friend here and a place to hang out, with me. Blessings, Y
