This week is my last week in my current home. I have enjoyed my time here immensely……a log cabin in the woods has allowed me to regroup, reflect, heal, and move forward. I will never forget my time here, and feel blessed to have experienced the beauty of the mountains. The road of life is an evolving journey, full of memories and new experiences. My road is now set to embark upon a new chapter.
Since I’ve been writing the weekly newsletter, I have moved twice, from New York City to a quaint village on the Hudson River, to a log house in the mountains. Where am I headed now you may ask? Cape Cod, Massachusetts….a place I visited two years ago and knew one day I would end up there. I just didn’t think it would be this soon! I am not saying good-bye to my friends here, for I am sure quite a few will be paying me a visit near the sea. I grew up in Southern California…..to me, it isn’t surprising that I am returning to the ocean.
I’m sure you too have moved a few times…..most of us do. Going through the closets and the drawers is a life-altering experience….do we ever realize what we accumulate, but don’t really need? Anyway, the journey of my life moves on, as does yours. Whether we physically move or not, change surrounds us always.
I’ve realized what’s really important in my life….family, friends, faith, and, oh yes, my little doggies. Thanks to the Internet, I can always write to you from the same place in my heart. The world is getting smaller……and what once used to take days for people to receive, now takes seconds.
So this is my last newsletter from my home in the woods……and the next essays will be sailing to you from the winds of Cape Cod.
Turn the pages,
love, Jennifer Avalon
