I am glad that I have this photo of me at Machu Picchu because
I have been beset by a general sense of unreality. The photo proves to me that I really WAS there.

Re-entry from being immersed in a vastly different culture can be
challenging, and whereas my traveling companion is filled with joy in her return to her work with children, to her husband, and
other family, I am feeling a little depressed. This sounds corny,
but it's as if I left my heart and soul in the Andes.

I have so much! I have more than I need to live comfortably, and I am also blessed by the time
to do art and write. But, it's all more complicated than I like, and I don't have the one thing which I need the most....the kind of comfort that only love and deep knowing one can have with
a spouse or close family, and a sense of purpose....a much greater purpose than just getting through each day, a purpose of making a difference in the lives of others.

This will come. I trust that this will come. And I know that this feeling of being in limbo will be replaced by change to a life which suits me more.

Note to all who ordered Vision cards from me before I left: I put them into the mail yesterday.
Please let me know if your set has not arrived by the week-end.
