How's it going?

Reflecting on life, in the moment. Whew! Time to slow down and savor the beginning of the chapter.

“How is it going?” you might be wondering.

I think it’s going well.

I’m still stunned at how fast everything happened

And how it actually worked out

Exactly as envisioned.

I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop,

While hoping there is no other shoe,

And my life really is working out this well.

Two months ago, 

I had no idea I’d be living

A mile high,

In a new city,

Renting a room instead of owning a house.

Retired with a view.

Planning mother-daughter visits,

Planning trips to music festivals,

Routing my journey to national parks and hiking trails.

Who would have thought

When I moved to an area and a job

I knew weren’t a good fit for me,

That I would so quickly figure out where I wanted to be,

and my stay  would be so short.

I thought it would be two years and out.

Instead it was eight months.

From the time I made the decision, it was five weeks.

So quick.

So worth the moments of stress.

So right.
