Can't sleep tonight. I can't complain, though, because I've had some of the best sleep here in the last few days than I've had in awhile.
I'm out on the patio off my bedroom gazing at the stars (and blogging). I am guzzling water, too - Carl's make me thirsty. Other than smelling the California fires in the distance, it is really nice out here. I can see Orion, and the Big and Little Dippers. I am surprised I can see the stars so clearly here. It is not as quiet as back home, but it is peaceful. I don't believe in Astrology, I actually think it's kind of dumb (sorry), but Astronomy fascinates me. I could look at the stars for hours.
I wonder where I'll be a year from now, and what I will be doing. It's scary and exciting to think about it. My mom said something along those lines tonight - she wondered what the next year would bring. She asked me what I was doing this time last year and one of the beauties of having a blog, I could tell her. I had just smashed my thumb into oblivion. LOL. I had no idea what was in store for me. Isn't it funny how you really never can guess what life is gonna do? Yes, it has been a tough year, and there are many people I miss, but there were some good things too. Some good things that changed my life. I didn't see any of it coming - but I'm glad about that. Bad surprises and good surprises. And many more to come.
Right now? I'm just trying to live in the moment.
