New Old Growth


The last year has been so healing. It was in a moment of despair on Oahu (yes it can happen there too) that Rob came to where I was crying on the floor and said the magic words “what about Missoula?”. He suggested he could transfer to Montana as there was an opening. Any other day I would have firmly said “heck no!”. I pictured Montana as boring and remote and freezing during the winter. I had no fight left, so I said a magical word in reply…”okay”.

Magic indeed.

Montana was a salve. Now I begin to say goodbye to the place that allowed me to find my peace and go on to a new world of crazy adventure.

Oh but I’ll miss these trees.


  1. It fills me with joy to read your words again – especially to know you left “paradise.” I am glad you are feeling peace again, and I hope to read about some of your upcoming adventures. Blessings and love to you!

    • Thank you so very much Kelly! It makes me smile knowing you’re still interested in what I have to say. I am definitely leaving paradise (Montana truly is)…as for the next place I’m not sure but I’m leaving expectations out of it. It will be challenging I have no doubt.
