Nighttime around Fischerville has been quiet lately.
That statement might sound weird; and it is.
But lately there’s been little to no sleep activity. The growing wrinkles under my eyes are thankful; the creative writing side of my brain is a tad disappointed.
If the hiatus ends, you can bet I’ll be sharing it with ya.
Daytime activity, however, has been alive and well. Here’s a few snapshots of recent life:
Celebrated Valentine’s weekend with a visit from some VA friends, mixing with DE friends for a fun night in Philly.
My favorite older sister and her two babies visited from TX!
Took a road trip to Charlottesville to see my favorite JMU girls and celebrate the engagement of one of my best friends!
Spent a weekend in the PA mountains with friends. Big Fisch was able to run wild…in the wild.
A few things I’ve been learning?
Home is where you’re living; where you’re doing. Maybe one day “home” to me will feel like a specific town or a certain house. But for now, “home” changes. It goes where we go and follows those we love.
Settled roots is not a concept I’ve felt for many, many years. I can’t seem to fit where I should be, what I should do with my life, or who exactly I am inside a box. The shape just keeps changing.
But I’m learning that as few things around me stay the same, who I’ve been created to be stays constant. So why do I sometimes live like I’m playing a game of “Paper, Scissors, Rock” just hoping that the strategy I choose might come out as a win?
My God gives me all the direction I need, when I need it. This life lesson, I continue to learn.
What’s new with you?
