Aside: SO sorry this is up late -- I wasn't able to post from my phone as I thought I could, and I was on the road the majority of the last few weeks. It should be back on schedule now!

With the all the doors that are being opened to me as a result of this move, choosing the word portals seemed rather wise. I just didn't know it would fall on the very weeks I was moving - serendipity i suppose. I can't even summon up the words to describe just how I feel. Setting aside the logistical overwhelm - my emotions are running rampant.

Apprehension, opportunity, strength, and fear are all playing a part.

Excitement, wonder, delight and optimism are up there as well.

Mostly, I am driven by curiosity. Will I like my new place? What will I discover in my new area? What challenges will I both face and overcome? What doors shall I choose to walk through? My mind has and infinite number of questions running through it at any given moment.

It is without a doubt, a momentus time in my life.

Isn't that one of the cutest and most clever doorknobs you've ever seen?
