I really needed a change of scenery and i certainly got it. This was my view this morning, on my walk along the San Pedro Trail on Mare Island. I am still pinching myself that I drove all the way around the country, and here i am. It is a strange sensation to be away from familiarity. routines and friends are stabilizing, and right now i feel really unstable. So unstable, in fact, that i phoned my friend, Kathryn, back in Boston. I knew i could count on her to be a good port in a storm. She is extremely level headed, with a great sense of humor. She helps me not to take myself so seriously and to embrace the parts of myself I would rather ignore or change.
Here is my office for the day, Nancy and Chris' living room.
