Quietly Processing

I’m sorry I’ve been absent from my blog this past month. I’ve been quietly processing and reflecting.

I was in survival mode for a long time, reacting by bobbing left and right to the punches being thrown.  Sharing via this blog has been a way for me to hopefully help others that might relate to my experiences; make connections on a deeper, more authentic level by baring my soul; illicit support in what can be a lonely journey; and process my thoughts by making sense out of what often feels like internal chaos. Now that I’m not living in response mode anymore, I’ve drawn into myself and have been internalizing the experiences of this past year.

I believe this quiet time has been good for me, but I’m sorry if I worried anyone. I’m doing very well! I’ve made some changes to my future plans, had a great followup visit with my doctor (I’m still in remission – yay!), and am feeling stronger each day, both physically and mentally. I’ll post the details of all of this, along with getting my travel entries caught up soon.

    Glad to know you are ok. Yes, I was worried.

    I’m excited to hear what your future plans are. It’s ok to make changes in your plans, so often we are reactive.

    Wish you had been in London, such an awesome time. The people you brought together are as fabulous as they seem.

    I’m sure all the processing is helping you figure things out, and the writing will help to get it out of your head and onto the paper……(or onto the computer file.) I look forward to your next blog, and to seeing you in person at Doug’s memorial gathering. Love, Margaret Ann

  3. Seasons of Quiet are very healing. Enjoy it thoroughly and give yourself extra care and love. Eventually, inspiration, motivation, and expression return to the forefront when the time is right. I love the quiet seasons.

    …sending you love and hugs and peaceful energy!! ❤

    Hi Sara,
    I’m glad to find your recent post and even happier to find out you are doing well. Take your time to charge your batteries …. the world is waiting is patiently waiting for you.
    .
    My latest plan is to head out on my Escape journey mid January ’17 … . trailer is stored in Bellingham. Likely I’ll follow 101 down the coast and somehow end up in New Mexico – Arizona (????). Wouldn’t it be fun to cross tracks so I could pet your dog!

    Like everyone else, I too was worried and now am relieved. It’s a strange feeling caring about someone I have never met in person. But I do and I am glad you are well.
