I’m not alone when I join the fray of people undergoing the transformation. The changes happening to us now are permanent, even if we did not expect them. Whether we have been displaced because of economics or a super storm, the end result takes patience as we let go of the old to make room for the new. We step into the void and we realize as we do this that others offer support. We don’t go through anything alone. Love is always present if we stop, breathe, and reflect (even for five minutes).
So, with all the changes I’ve undergone, I changed this blog. As I relocate from Bellingham (a city I no longer find liveable) to the Peninsula, I decided to focus on local travel in Washington and Oregon. I will also feature tiny homes and the mobile lifestyle which will trend in the next few years (if it hasn’t done already). We are moving past the permanent home on a plot of land, the white picket fence and living happily ever after. With climate change and other shifts on the planet those dreams have died. And as we rise from the ashes to embrace a more mobile lifestyle, we must say good bye to the old as we heal the grief in our hearts.
We can’t take it with us, but we can at least carry home on our backs and in our hearts. By the way, my fund raiser is still in effect. I am in a transitional situation until I raise the money to rent a new home in Port Townsend. Then eventually, I’m buying a tiny home that I can relocate when the time comes.
