I have been silent in blog land for too long.
For what seems a long time, a dream has been moving towards reality. I am going to be on the road this summer being creative at festivals! I am now officially a traveller, a nomad, a journeyman.
From the Faeries' Oracle Deck by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth
The Journeyman talks about adventure, independence and travel...straying off the "safe" path and exploring the road less travelled. This can be scary, but following your own path...even if that is different and seemingly more risky than the status quo...can be crucial to your growth and development right now.
The key is to keep an attitude of gratitude and good-natured innocence here. Be willing to learn and embrace new things, even if you are not 100% sure where they are leading. Know that you are being guided and protected. Always be aware of your blessings and give thanks for them...this is a wonderful time of new beginnings or of new phases of an ongoing process that is important to you.
And Robert Frost's poem is apt
Where will my wages come from? I am going to trust, trust life to give me what I need now. I choose happiness and juggling and creating. Its clear (with hindsight) what my next step is. It might not be logistically easy, travelling for 5 weeks, a week home, then another 5 weeks. We're organising our childrens' education, our professional jobs and animals.
But, I am more than ready for this adventure.
