Rock, Paper, Scissors

Nighttime around Fischerville has been quiet lately.

That statement might sound weird; and it is.

If you’ve browsed this blog before, you know that Big Fisch’s sleeping walking tendencies keep things…interesting.

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:

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?
