do something new

change is doing something you've never done

And so it is.
We have finally arrived.
These 2 weeks have been hectic, to say the least.
Flying in from NY and then jumping into picking up our lives and moving forward.
Life has been boxes within boxes within boxed chaos.
I sit in my new living room with a tea and computer, like it’s the first.

It’s quiet.

The sound of a water stream from a machine in our neighbor’s front lawn.
The sound of Sunday cars in the distance.
The sun warming up the boxes out front ready to be recycled.

It is quiet.

I’m thinking of change.
I’m thinking of how little we know the future.
I’m thinking how humbled I am that I walk through life with trust.
I’m thinking how lucky we are.

Quiet does that to you.

Head starts up a million to-do’s.
And there are, a million to do’s.
But not right now.
Let’s breathe.
Let’s stay here for a moment.
Let’s sip the tea and take it all in.

“There will come a time 
when you believe
everything is finished.

That will be 
the beginning.”
