I said my farewells to the hood this morning during my run in Stanley Park…a loop around Lost Lagoon with sightings of new goslings, squirrels and brilliant flowers. A raccoon unexpectedly popped out from the bushes on my run up the hill towards home scaring the daylights out of me and bringing a smile to the face of a cyclist heading in the opposite direction. Aw..I will miss this.
Tonight just before the clock strikes midnight I will be on my way to Australia and Bali. My blog will be my travel journal (better than the scribbles in a tiny book I usually do) and it will keep me connected to family and friends.
If you are thinking the title of this blog means “hey I’ve landed down under” you are partially right. Its also a comment on being here in the now and loving and accepting what ever it brings. Its all we really have…this moment of time that disappears in the time it takes to acknowledge it. So grab it by the a@# and live!
