Two days later, I made a decision to stay around Ithaca and scope out the scene. I told my sister, I would take a cue from fishermen and spend time checking out the waters before deciding where to cast. I also stated I would occasionally glance down and notice if I was sprouting roots. This is a good place to observe waters both physically, spiritually and metaphorically. There seems to be constant flowing in many realms. It also seems fertile ground to sprout roots. Having spent the past three months in focused on taking observations, I hope to use the next few days in reflection.
It so happens that I will also be taking a short journey to Boston. I was coming from that direction when I made my decision to dwell here for a while. I plan to use my travel time to make reflections. The next few days gleanings will be recorded in this blog. I will suspend my regular writing assignment while I ponder making this area a more permanent settlement. I also appeal to any of my readers to respond. I appreciate feedback, while making what feels to be an important choice.
