It has been almost one year.
Last year at this time Germany was my temporary home.
Now it is England.

I am outside of any city in the beautiful green and ever proud english landscape.

The work remains as important as ever.
And I am continually in awe of of these families and their strength.

Hold them in light and health - body, mind and soul.

Oklahoma is my new home - for awhile at least.
The winds do come roaring off the plain, they weren't kidding.

Often my thoughts wander back to Europe and the adventures
we had after leaving Germany.

It was amazing.

Walking by this Flower Shop is going to be one thing I do for myself everyday for the rest of my stay in Wiesbaden. It refreshes my spirit on so many levels. And it is so easy. I love it when you see something that feeds your soul and you can feel it in your body instantly. A practice that can bring you back to yourself as easily as taking a breath.

I pass by this coffee/pastry cafe everyday on my way to my car.
But i have yet to taste - but soon. . . .

There are so many choices in life. So many directions we can wander into - seemingly by accident - but I don't believe that anymore. What I do believe is that life never happens the way we plan. I love the saying, "We make plans, and God laughs".

The unfolding of unpredictable directions is happening all around me these days. In my life, in the lives of the people I am working with, in every corner of the world. Another lesson in learning to surf the waves.

I look at the people I work with and can't help but think about them going to afganistan again. Thousands more to leave very soon. There is a deep sense of loss here. It is impossible to ignore.
