a change of scenery

1 Jun

20130601-144018.jpgSee that beautiful expansive blue sky? It is symbolic of some long-sought-after clarity in my mind, the bright open feeling in my heart, and the hope of many new beginnings in my soul. The arrival of June means it’s been almost a year since John and I moved back to the Kootenays! It has been a wonderful 11 months so far: new friends, career changes, lots of travel, and so much more! However these past experiences were much like the rock cliff in the photo: a hard climb, a proud challenge and the foundation of our lives here in Castlegar. The biggest (and most looked-forward-to) change this year will be another move! Our basement suite hasn’t been what we had hoped for and it has been putting some unneeded stress in our lives; to say we are looking forward to having a space of our own (both indoors and out) is an understatement. We have found a cute little 2 bedroom home and can’t wait to be making it our own in just one short month! The lush green trees in the above photograph represent not only the planting of our new roots, but also a soft place to land, as we leap off of this rocky cliff into all of the wonderful possibilities that this gorgeous blue sky has to offer.
