And trying to articulate how what I'm feeling isn't particularly sadness but involves a certain melancholy. Trying to explain how I budge the melancholy with activity, trying to reassure that I'm moving past it with projects and planning, and that overall I'm excited, anticipating what comes next. . . although admittedly with some trepidation.
But it's taking me much longer to write than I thought, and I suspect I'm going to have to divide it into several posts. I'm meeting my sister at 6:30 (yes! a.m! she's like that! -- and I've been awake since before 4 anyway -- jetlag!) for our first run together since I became an official Vancouver resident, and before I head off, I want to wish you a Happy Monday! Start of a new week, all the possibilities. Want to let you know I'm working on some words. Feeling the feels, as the kids say. . . .
Comments always welcome, as you know by now. . .
