PRE TRAVEL EVE

Tomorrow I fly to Sydney. Nervous but curiously calm so far. Today I pack a small bag. Clean my walking shoes and see whether the Op Shops have any more. put in medical records and see what else arises.

Travel changes people. Well it always changes me and this time , I find it most unnerving because I am barely reassembled and the glue hasn’t even set. I have a fear of fracturing completely.

Apparent focus of the trip is to get a Hep C profile.

True focus of this trip is :

Celebrate my brother’s birthday and fulfil broken commitments to him and Scott.

Meet the baby Louis and my Ella  and my nieces and nephew.

AIMS :

go cheerfully.

go and return without freaking.

TODAY:

discipline the mind and emotions.

go downtown. get shoe polish. look in op shops for shoes and shirts.

pack the bag.

TECHNIQUES

KEEP IT SIMPLE.

TRAVEL LIGHTLY.

Met the Girls and shopped today. Small gifts for Sydney and medical papers. A look at the new house and morning tea at the Greengrocer. I am accumulating experiences . The emotions remain at times un affected and at other times still raggedy from trauma but I know that the Gathering of the Good will gradually become integrated into the Me that is developing. I had a morning with my daughter and a long phone call with my son. I like those things.
