Book of Speculation

THE BOOK OF SPECULATION by Erika Swyler, by Lynn Tomlinson from Lynn Tomlinson on Vimeo.

I have never read a book quite like this before.
But it was just the thing to take on my travels.
It has books, librarians, mystery, family, love and strength. Highly, recommend.

This trip has been amazing.
I know many of you wondered how Nova Scotia ended up on the list... And consistently for so long.
But I have to tell you my heart knew. It is stunning and somehow I randomly picked a week with full moon and high tides. We were able to kayak in places that are normally not accessible.

I feel strong in the water. I started off a water girl - or atleast near the water but never a swimmer and then fell in love with the mountains. But this is wonderful as well.

This year I am not crazy about any.
I do know that Hilary is the biggest corrupt liar I have ever watched unfold on the political scene.
It is disgusting. I am sad for our country.

It is not pretty, but it is mine.

I made comfort food tonight. Actually, I make comfort food every night. Food is comforting.
Salmon patties are straight from my mom and simple pickles, cucumbers, radish, and cheese.
More food prep than cooking
I am in the process of using everything in the lease home as I am moving out in less than two weeks. Which by the way is completely surreal.
But I  have LOVED living in VRBO's and a fully furnished leased home this last year or so. I will have a year of something else and then see what the next chapter brings.

I am back to do doing that thing again -planning an entire year, making back up plans to plan, having the uncomfortable conversation about deployment and buying the ever important deployment socks and underwear. I am tidying up relationships that I will unpack in a year or so...or not.
My hope is to slip out as quietly as I slipped in.
I am going to miss some people significantly. And I promise,someday, I am going to tell them.
I moved new people into my will and people moved from the will.
It is all very utilitarian.
