    Healing / Moving On

    I have realised over the years, that "home" is inside my head and not some external place that can be marked by GIS. It is not at the side of a partner. It is not in the spray of my children's achievements.I am "home". Wherever I move to is home. Meeting people on my journeys are...

    At the moment of writing this,

    , I am sitting in a very busy airport lounge waiting to board a plane that will take me on the first leg of my journey home. I've waited more than 30 years to go back to see what I used to call "home" I'm excited but nervous all at once. I really don't know what to expect as I...

    Oh my. I'm tired. I'm a long way from what I

    have called home for the past 30 years, but I'm also a long way from being home where I was born. Another airport lounge, another time zone, and I am homesick for both places. I am in "no mans land" just now. Neither here, nor there. I can't wait to see Tbilisi. When I see...

    Tomorrow, I am going back to Nashville.

    After 9 months of living here in the land that time sort of passed by. Oh I love it here in MD on the Eastern shore. I came here and expected everyone to just open their arms and wallets to me once they learned what I could do for their kids. What I have done for so many others...

    This year, like every year,

    my friends and I are going back home... This year, like every year, they bring the spoils of their triumphs.. But this year, unlike every year, I am no homecoming king.. I am a shadow of my former glory with a burden on my shoulders.

    It's been such a long time already. There's probably a lot to do first though.
