Changes and Renewal, Adventures.
I feel that I have entered a new part of my life. Here there is Creative Writing, and not so Creative attempts at being Published. There is traveling, and starting in a few hours, the first stage of that will begin, with my departure to the UK. For the next two and a half weeks I will be hitchhiking and couchsurfing and interviewing my way through towns and cities and forests and universities in England, Wales, Ireland, and Scotland.
Home has been a renewal for me, and I feel ready to start these things, to start a huge change in my life, while my friends lives are changing back here in Austin and Fort Worth. Jenn, my wonderful husband, Emily, my soulmate, and my lovely lovely always supportive family, and Matt who will open a bookstore with me, and Laura and I will live in the forest and write short stories, and Candace who living with was like being in an awesome dream, and Phyllis and I eating blueberry pie, and Mallory my love we will move together to a remote mountain in Spain where we will be hermits and write and mail our manuscripts into civilisation.
So, for the duration of my adventures in the Kingdom of Unitedness, I will be keeping track of my adventures, or at least, letting everyone know where I am and that I'm alive, here. Hopefully once I return to Japan, this will continue as well. So from here on out, most of my entries will be public as well, so that all of my friends can keep up with me.
My next entry will be from somewhere across the sea!
Shunpatsu! There's a whole lot of walking to do, guys.
