Pre-Pre-Flight, ME Newsletter, Vol. 4 Issue 35.5
Fall means back to school. A mercurial time for me, it signals a time to begin preparing to learn. I suppose I’ll be learning a lot about myself in the next few weeks. Some of it before I even travel as I reclaim my love of the journey and the preparation. Both of which come with a bit of stress that I’d like to rename as a challenge; a challenge to my bravery, my determination and my deductive powers of reasoning. I guess I’ve gotten better at staying put. A dozen years in Michigan is the longest run in 32 years. Still, I can’t say I feel more rooted here than anywhere else; I can’t say I feel less rooted either. Complacency vs comfortableness?
Time to defy inertia. Time to start making calls, making arrangements, arm myself with research and knowledge in un-concrete forms, and use my imagination to thwart any foreseeable problems. It’s turned into a good time to arm myself with pens and notebooks, and a new phone which I am trying to master. Supposedly I can edit documents on it. So far, I haven’t figured out how, but I need to soon. Otherwise how will I send my newsletter from Ireland? Yes, that’s important to me. I’ve never missed a week, yet. 4 years worth of weekly announcements coming up in October; 5 years worth of widowhood coming up in October.
