That was another statement I broadcast, when I choose to investigate this area. I declared I would occasionally look at my feet to see if I was sprouting any roots. Several small nubs are appearing that could likely turn into roots. The largest is perhaps, a visit from a family member to what I refer to as my home. My sister, Karen, and her daughter, Laura, came by last week for a couple of days. Besides being a treat, I took it as a sign, I might be settled enough for folks to travel across country to find me. Then just after she left, I got a message my brother, John, and his wife, Lyette are planning to come next week. These visits are helping me to regard this as my home.
Several other items come up that indicate grounding may be occurring. One, while showing my sister around, a stranger asked me is I was from around here. She was looking for directions and information. Without admitting I was from here, I was able to answer her questions and provide directions. I could even fill in small segments of local lore. Afterward, she thanked me for my help. I may be slipping into native costume after all. Next, I took on a small part time job and got a first paycheck confirming my local address as my residence. That and the fact, I have a local post box, makes me feel I may be headed to becoming a settler. When I first arrived here, I was uncertain if I would just keep on traveling. It now seems it may be time to break out my tackle box and cast around for fortune.
