It is September and close to the end of another year for me.  And what an incredible year it has been…

I have traveled to far flung places.
Seen, heard and felt things that will have forever changed me.

I have lived fully.  The meaning, the moments and the memories.

I have felt deeply.  The wonder, the awe, the overwhelming passion for love and for life

I have loved completely.  With my heart and with my soul.

I have enjoyed simply.  With my toes in the water, my sights set on sunrise and sunset.

Another year marker will soon be here.  If change helps us to grow, then I am open to all the growth that my next year on this earth has in store for me.

One of the most exciting things about my job, is all the opportunities I get to travel around and meet new people.

In November I am heading up to Scotland.  Last time I was there I had a pancake-related incident and a continuation of the on-going car saga that is my life…

Now that I’ve seen this pic, I’m REALLY looking forward to meeting some of the locals this time… 🙂

Day 318 - Journey On

On my way to climb Snowdon, I have spent a few days with a friend.
I have visited Wrexham, Wetherby, Warrington, Chester and Manchester in the past few days and have enjoyed a really relaxing time meeting new people and seeing new sights.

It has felt good seeing beyond the 3 minute friendship… On many levels.

Tomorrow I move on to Snowdon. And the challenge and experiences that it might hold.

Day 300 - Crest of the Wave

I have really enjoyed having an excuse to have a little extra purpleness in my life 300 times!

With only 65 more of these blog posts to come, it feels a little like we’ve reached the crest of the wave.

Thank you for company so far, on this journey with me…

Day 254 - Bridges and Doors

A bridge. A link from what is to what could be. From the known to the unknown.
A symbol of transition. A means of crossing.

Doors are also symbolic of transition. A closed door being the barrier between one place and another. This stage and the next.

Perhaps this is why I am drawn to both…

Day 175 - Several Shades of Purple.

Not everything goes the way I want it to.
Not everything looks the way I’d like it to.
Not everyone behaves in ways that I’d like them to.
Such is life.
I haven’t seen everything I’d like to see.
I haven’t done everything I’d like to do.
I haven’t reached the heights I’d like to reach.
I’ve experienced more lows that I would’ve liked.
Such is life.

It tells me I have far still to go on this journey of my life and that is as it should be.

A very good friend tells me that we are the sum total of every decision we ever make.
I’ve made some great decisions, and some truly terrible ones. I’ve changed my mind and changed direction. I’ve grown and changed and evolved and progressed according to the influences and experiences I’ve enjoyed. I’m sure there is much still to come that will add to the shades of me that I am. I welcome the new colours.

My life is several shades of purple. As am I.
