The Snow Globe continues

I am still floating around, waiting to make sense of whatever these big changes are. At the same time I am seeing new kids, and getting ready to say goodbye to two 'old' ones who will soon be turning three! That is alway hard, when I have been with them for almost three years. I have been privy to most of their lives, and have watched them grow and change. I also get to know the families really well and have shared many special moments with them, and then, goodbye!  (A repetitive pattern in my life as well)

Just after the new year, I leave for Israel. I leave on a Friday so I will travel, hopefully, with 'normal' folks who will not be up to pray at different times during the flight. (Read my blog entry: Strange Flights.)

Of course the situation in the Middle East leaves much to be desired! I can only pray for a good family reunion.

So ... more later, maybe from Israel, maybe not

Snow Globe

I feel as if I am in a snow globe and some unseen hand has shaken it up, and I float around, without gravity, without a center - upside down, on my side, head up, head down. The flakes surround me and I cannot see any horizon. I cannot see any settling of these flakes, and each moment, each day, brings a renewed shaking.
This is, for me, a time of many changes, on the personal and professional level. the only thing I am able to do, at this time, is to honor the process, as difficult as it is.
It is for this reason, that I have not written new posts. All my psychic energy is taken up with momentum caused by the shaking of the globe - from time to time I experience gratitude, in spending time with friends, in the enjoyment of books, in walks in nature, in the rebuilding of my physical strength and the healing of my hand.
And so I drift and float, and hope for glimpses of clarity until the flakes eventually settle.
