Have you ever felt like you are on the edge of something important, something life changing, something incredible, but you don’t know what it is? I haven’t been able to shake that feeling for the past three weeks. There are all these points of light that are the pieces of my life have been slowly circling each other, travelling through space, winding their way closer and closer together as if they are being drawn together by a magnetic force down through a funnel. The tension is building but the path the energy will take is unclear.
I am daring to hope, to believe, that everything I have been doing – at times (often?) tedious and insular – is finally going to have an outlet, with the result of launching me into a clearer orientation and purpose. That there are actually options. That there are great things to come.
And you know what? It’s SO FREAKING EXCITING.
I’m not sure how much I should be actively trying to resolve whatever is going on vs. letting connections happen naturally. But for now I watch…and wait…because this is slightly trippy and weird.
What else is new? Hmmm… I turned 30. I’m more or less on track to hand in my dissertation (beginning of November). I signed up to run a marathon on October 27th in Luzern as a de-stressing method for the whole finishing my PhD thing (yes, I am fully aware that I am crazy). I’m on a sabbatical from alcohol (at least until I finish my dissertation). Life in DC was wonderful, life in Basel is grand. I’m in a band and get to sing songs by Pink and Nirvana. Summer is glorious…
…and I have a tan.
