I didn’t realize how true that was, until now. Until Shiloh is Purely Spirit. It wasn’t ONE Wandering Spirit, it was three. I got it wrong, and then comforted myself with thought that the three of us are one combined spirit…all one with each other.
Now I know that even more so. We really ARE one….Shiloh’s spirit is still here with me…he is part of me. I feel his presence.
This is part of how I’m coping with his death….by believing that he is still here….because I just don’t know how to be without him.
Anyway, the blog is now mis-named in another way too. Well. Sort of. Because we are no longer wandering. I’ve decided to settle. Joy and I will be starting a new chapter in our lives….so….
why not start a new blog too???
(Besides, I’ve used up about 90% of my space on this one)!
Joy on the beach this morning.
i brainstormed new titles for a blog and read them to my friend Laura. She commented that I left ‘wandering’ out of all of them. I said, yes, because I’m no longer wandering…it would be misleading. Her thoughts on that were that no, it wouldn’t be misleading because she has always seen me as a wanderer. If not spiritually then physically wandering the beache, or Big Sur, or moving from Michigan to California to New Hampshire, back to California, back to Michigan, then back to California, then traveling four years, and now back to California! Yes, she said, you ARE a Wandering spirit. That’s not misleading!
‘Our beach’…so to speak.
Landing in California four times, I think I can safely say the coast of California is home. So, I came up with the title of a new blog…..
“Wandering Spirits At Home”.
The blog is there, though sometimes Google says it doesn’t exist. (It needs a lot of work. I’d like to get the words below the picture, and the small picture out of the middle of the big picture…but it’s got me totally frustrated right now so I’ll try again later. Also the picture and quote at the very end were added by WordPress….not mine.)
Looks like this right now.
Yes, that’s plural on the ‘spirits’ this time.
All of us, Shiloh included. And maybe someday another spirit will join us….
First blog is called ‘An Introduction All Over Again’, but it’s very brief.
I was hesitant to do this, because I may lose a lot of you. It means you will have to find me again, and if you want the new blog to come to you automatically you’ll need to sign up again.
And you may no longer care to read the new blog because we are staying in one spot for now and that may not interest you.
I don’t know where it’s going to lead. There will be things about minimalist living I think, because right now I have very few possessions and I like living simply. Changing over residency to California. Dogs, gardening, beach walks, poetry, vegan/vegetarian lifestyle….who knows what else. Right now the plan is to spend some time at Caballo Loco Ranch in Arizona this winter, up on my hill, boondocking. so there’s that.
I will also continue to post here for awhile to remind those that might come looking, that we’ve moved the blog.
I hope you all will understand and if you think you might have some interest in our new adventures, I hope you’ll come along!
