|One of so many fabulous Oregon coast bridges|
know how when you travel you reach a certain point and you feel done and ready to return home? i have had that feeling many times, but this was not that trip. this one was hard to let go of....

we have the motorhome thing pretty much down to a science. and when things go well, as they did (with the exception of some relentless rain and a scary freeway blow-out), and there are brand new wonders to discover every single day….. well, it can be hard to jump out of that mode and back into the daily routine of home.
|Sunrise on the dunes..... oh, what an experience!!|
but although i do love travel, i’m realizing that it is an interruption from my regular creative life. that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but i’m seeing a familiar pattern.
before we leave i pack all kinds of books and magazines and notebooks related to projects i am involved in. i’m excited about having time to devote to these things. i may look at them the first day on the road…. and then everything just goes right out the window. i get involved in the trip and i have no further interest in any of it.
so…. in that way, i’m pleased to be home. i want to dig back into my projects…. carve out some alone time for reflection and reconnect with my creative goals (not to mention my creative friends – hope to catch up with you soon!!)
i'm so grateful for every little thing about this trip and for a safe return after 2,500 miles on the road!
