I remember as a child my mom always saying, "Red sky at night sailors delight, red sky at morning sailors take warning." As I ran along the clifts over looking the Pacific at sunset...and of course it was a red sky. I can only guess it was the relief of having the packers out of the house and getting to the last part of the move...tomorrow we load the truck...but I had a real sense of relief. Or was it because the sunset was just beautiful. Anyway my mental stress was gone. As I ran along the cliff, I remembered my mom's old saying...and yea..."Red sky at night..." Good things are coming. We just need to keep putting one step in front of the next.

Moving Day

I feel I'm repeating myself, but I have found it difficult to keep this blog updated. I'm currently preparing to move from the West Coast to the East Coast in the next few weeks. In fact the packers are here right now packing boxes around me, as I grab a quick lunch.

Yesterday, I got out for a great run at sunset. The temperature was cool and the breeze off the Pacific was almost cold... I have found that in the midst of all the stress in my life, a run like that along a wooded path, or along the coast restores my spirit. In the next few days...I'll be tied up with the packers and then moving the whole of my life holdings onto a truck for the 2000+ mile move to Maryland. My own trek across country includes a stop in Yellowstone National Park and Mt Rushmore. So hopefully I can add a few interesting pictures to the blog next week. Well, take care and I'll write more after the packers are done.
