guiding thoughts

"it is good to feel lost... because it proves you have a navigational sense of where "home" is.  you know that a place that feels like being found exists.  and maybe your current location isn't that place but, hallelujah, that unsettled, uneasy feeling of lost-ness just brought you closer to it."  [e. harris]
this weekend, i was back to the living-by-myself-in-the-south routine. the whole month of july has been spent with family; either in nebraska or here. so, it was especially unsettling to be in a quiet, empty apartment for two days. racing thoughts can get overwhelming and the silence, deafening. i played a lot of catch up this weekend [mostly laundry], however, didn't find the alone time to be especially revitalizing. but, at least i know what i am missing. like ms. harris says, it exists. and it is close. and the uneasiness is going to get me back to where i need to be.
may your week be close to home.
