In My Zone
June 12, 2009

I was back yesterday. In my zone. Me again. I lived a full day. No naps, no rest, no holding back, just real life. I fell into bed exhausted at the end of the day and slept like a baby.

Today began with BF and me eating scrambled eggs and plotting our final to-do lists, with the windows and doors wide open and our kitchen full of fresh air. Then it was off to an early yoga class. Friday is our gentle practice day which is good for me. I don’t think any single thing is better for me right now than yoga practice. It lifts my spirits and calms me while strengthening my body. I’d like to take my little teacher on vacation with me.

In fact, I was so calm when I returned from yoga, that I didn’t even freak out when I opened my email to find my entire inbox empty. I cannot figure this out and it’s happened to me twice now. All my saved emails have disappeared. Last time, we worked for days attempting retrieval. Screw it! I don’t even care anymore. Just know that if you emailed me in the past 12 hours, I did not receive it and I’ve lost all record of times, dates, or contact numbers that I’ve saved in emails. Annoying, but I refuse to freak out like I did the last time.

This morning, I’m taking full advantage of having the house to myself. I’m checking all lists twice and actually packing my stuff in the bag. It’s impossible to properly focus and do what I need to do for me when the guys are around. I require solitude and clear airspace for important jobs like selecting the optimum 33 pounds of stuff to make life comfortable for the next 15 days. One of the items on the prescribed Packing List was “Sense of Humor.” That sounds pretty important and it weighs nothing, so I’ll be sure to include mine.

We’ll see what happens today after we begin taking our anti-malaria pills. My stomach ills of last week practically amounted to malaria and now that I’m feeling almost normal again, I have to introduce a foreign substance to my body. Could be intertesting.

Given computer access and solitude, I’ll blog while I’m gone. If not, I’ll be writing plenty in my journal which I’ll share upon my return. Signing off today with a lovely Ethiopian proverb taken from our Micato materials:

“Anticipate the good so that you may enjoy it.”

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
