The Explorer and I on my 22nd birthday.
June 27, 2009 – Salt Creek Falls, Oregon
You know, 22 was pretty great.
Pretty mellow, especially when compared to the whole of 2009 (and down right comatose compared to ’08!).
The nice thing about my birthday being almost exactly 6 months from the beginning of the year: it gives me a logical time to re-think what I want to accomplish in the year. How I want to live. Who I want Kathryn Louise to be in six months time.
I have lots of little thoughts floating around my head regarding who I am and how I want to live and intention.
Intention in my personal life and in my craft. I haven’t sat and grappled with the thoughts long enough to articulate them. I don’t like to sit and be with myself, but I think it’ll be good for me to start again. Learning to sit and be with my thoughts is what saved me in Philadelphia. And while I am no where near where I was then, I think it’ll be good for me. I feel so good about where I am in life right now, I think now would be a good time to tackle the last of the “shoulds” in my head.
