The plan yesterday morning was to explore the Texas Gulf coast, then gradually make my way westward.
The plan this morning, is to find a place for some extended solitude.
I’ve been actively “doing things” for the past seven months: My sister’s death, helping my parents move, buying and outfitting the van, rushing to see the leaves change, rushing back to avoid the cold, more work on the van….
All this activity has kept me from looking deeply into things which have been calling me for the last couple of months—things which are best addressed in solitude.
During this planned solitude, I may also take a break from blogging—haven’t decided yet. I’ve been blogging continuously since June 2008, even longer when you look at my older blogs (pre-2001), so a brief respite may be in order. Or not. Maybe I’ll just limit them to those “In-Nature” posts—or just photos. Who knows.
I’m thinking the Winter Solstice (December 21) is a good time to start. Somewhere between two weeks to two months of deep introspection.
More on this later. I’ve got some driving to do.
