Nature has been thwarting my attempts at the blog-a-day challenge – we had a big storm here the last few days, knocking out internet at the place I’m housesitting and making me reticent to walk around with my laptop in the rain.
The past two weeks have been quite a ride. I feel like every day me and my life are getting tumbled in a cup like dice and dumped out on the table. I rearrange everything and then the next day everything gets upended again.
It looks like I’ll be continuing to live here in Assisi. I was hoping to travel during the month of October, visit friends in Berlin and Barcelona and tour around Italy a bit. But my life circumstances are indicating that my path is here.
And what more could I want than what I’ve got here? It’s funny, that searching/seeking/wanting/lacking that seems to be unending, that keeps us unsatisfied and keeps us looking for something always beyond what we’ve got in the present.
I’ve been pursuing external freedom this year; it seems that now it’s time for me to focus on internal freedom.
