In the morning, I take off for (not so) distant lands in pursuit of the-project-for-which-I-have-such-hope.
When I read the email inviting me to meet with TPTB, my first thought was to call the friend who has worked so hard to help me on this. The second was what to wear. I'll spare you the endless internal discussions about whether to color my hair. You know I caved.
I kid you not, I've spent most of the last two days getting my nails and feet buffed and polished, my hair colored, my eyebrows done. I've shopped in two states, buying new duds from the bra out.
Tomorrow morning I'll set sail on a new adventure. I've always loved the Andre Gide quote about be willing to lose sight of the shore, something like "People cannot discover new lands unless they have the courage to lose sight of the shore for long periods."
I'm surrounded by nothing but water here. But heck, I've always loved the ocean.
