I am sitting in the Eugene airport waiting to return to Arizona. Just as I have finally acclimated to the cool, rainy Northwest it is now time to return to the hot deserts of the Southwest. I am returning to the sun of the South with my own internal sun lit and replenished.
My two week visit started out as too much time, and ended with not enough time. The generosity of three friends enabled me to split my visit among homes which hopefully made it easier for all of us. This was the first time in years that I was able to spend hours, full days and over nights with friends, finally having time for long conversations, hugs, laughter and tears. I feel full and blessed to continue to have these people in my life.
My legal issues with my son have been resolved and completed, each of us breathing a sigh of relief that we can now move forward. It has been a painful learning experience for both of us but we made it through the tunnel and our bond remains unsevered. Definitely one of the most challenging events I have gone through.
I decided to return to Riverbend Hot Springs in Truth or Consequences, NM for a 6 week workcamping stay so won't be back in Buckeye very long before I head down the road. Hot mineral springs, starry skies and the Rio Grande are calling me back.
Life feels good. It feels expansive, full and rich. Some days the sky is cloudy and some days the sky is sunny. Life is living the full spectrum.
