She had studied the universe all her life, but had overlooked its clearest message: For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love.

A single roller coaster is an understatement to this year. How about taking all of Cedar Point’s roller coasters, shaking them together in an explosive cocktail and letting loose.. now that has been my year.
We move this weekend to the smaller apartment. I’m ready to move. I’m not happy about the downsizing, or the physical move, but I’m happy about other small things like that my commute is in the opposite direction of the master traffic congestion, or that our rent is now substantially much cheaper and we are closer to the city.
Most of everything is packed. I have not had any motivation this week to finish the packing, but it’s just the food in our pantry, some leftover dishes and the clothes. I’m ready. I have regained some hope again and my outlook is optimistic for the time being. Unfortunately„ I’m still not even holding high regards for next year’s housing market. The tiny mobile houses, or RV living looks tempting more and more each day.. I have to tell you. I have been for that movement for a few years now, and while I never really wanted to go to that small of extent.. I am starting to see the Pros of it all.
I have taken such a mental beating this year. I really would love to get away…. anywhere… Give me water, a beautiful scene, open space, freedom and my travel easel and paints.
