Hope...and Hair

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.

As they say...bon voyage!

Knock 'em dead, kiddo!

We're living parallel lives right now. Helps to know you're over there in your boat, same ocean.

Both you and Carrie are also surrounded by the love and blessings and faith-in-you of fellow sailors. It's wonderful to hear the energy in your voice. I want to hear more!

You're going to knock their socks off. They'll wonder why they didn't find you a long time ago, my dear, buffed nails or not.

Love and light.

I am so excited for you and a little bit jealous.

You go Jerri! The Universe awaits you with open arms saying, "YES!"
