There are two common ways most of our callings get expressed in our lives: as a job, or as a volunteer vocation. Sometimes the work we would most love to do does NOT fit the mold of the life path we have been following, even if we think it does. Something is missing.

Perhaps you have noticed that I haven’t written on this blog in several years. My life went through major changes in location, lifestyle, and internal metamorphus. Some of it I fought, other parts were accepted with a resigned sigh, or grief. It took several years, but my inner and outer worlds have finally settled down. I can still hear bubblings coming from deeper places in my psyche, so I know there still may be more to come.
