i hope you aren't too disappointed to see that this post does not contain any photos of my recent trip to the oregon coast. i’m getting there. i wanted to tell this story first and it is related. i promise.
yesterday i had to spend nearly 6 hours in the Portland airport and another 3 getting back to san diego. total 12 hours from doorstep to doorstep including driving. boring, right? well, yes, normally it would be. except the strangest thing happened.
keep in mind i was fresh from being enveloped by the warmth of 13 beautiful, creative scarf sisters (yes, kelly, you too!) and basking in the glory of so many moods of the pacific. and another round of shiva nata practice. oh, and i just happened to have my camera, laptop, journal and ipod with me.
let me tell you, it was a whole different experience. i swear i was in some kind of zone. everything i looked at seemed like a photo op. i was writing down random thoughts that occurred to me. i stayed completely calm when i found out my flight was delayed. again.
then when we took off out of sacramento there was an incredible sunset on one side of the plane and the rising full moon on the other. no one even seemed to notice. but i was drinking it all in. to the tune of ottmar liebert and james blunt.
reality is doing a pretty good job of hitting me in the face this morning, but i feel ready. bring it on. more to come…..
