Running From and To...
With the impending move, I find myself running.
Not the sneaker, water bottle, fitness type of running.
Running from the coming winter weather which will soon be upon us.
Running from coming gusts of cold, rain, swirling leaves, frosty mornings.
Running toward Autumn.
Running to get things sorted out, packed, and ready for the move toward the west, at the edge of the City.
Running to find a new home. Looking at apartments, viewing houses, talking to real estate agents and rental agents.
Running to get it settled and in place before the cold, rainy weather comes slithering in by mid-October.
Running toward many little goals that are part of this whole moving process.
Goals which involve finding decent homes for two of our rescue dogs. A heart breaking and difficult goal.
Goals of cleaning out, packing, and whittling down to the essence of what we need and want to carry to our new household.
Running to get rid of George Carlin's "stuff".
Running to set up yard sales, Good Will donations, bags for the county dump.
Running from, running to, running toward.
Running toward a new life that will bring with it opportunities for renewed life, joy, inner peace, and opportunity.
Running to the next phase of our life while running from some of the catastrophic sadness of the past phase of our life.
Running, moving, striding, galloping toward sweet, delicious change!
