Ushering in the new month with Ruth Perry's Celtic Snowflake:
Tatted in hand dyed tatting silk "Marina" size 20.
I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by! Before you know it I'll be moving again. I heard that the stress of moving is on the same level as going through a divorce or someone close to you dyeing. At first I thought, "Man! How can that be true?" But after moving 48 times and getting geared up for number 49 I realize that it is true. Moving is a bereavement of everything familiar; a loss of stability, routine, friends, family, etc. And for me it's always just as I start to adjust to a new place that I get uprooted again.
I am just finding a rhythm here in Korea; it has been 8 months and we have only four more to go. We don't know what our future holds; we have no clue where we will be living 6 months from now and we won't find out at least until February.
One would think that moving gets easier when you do it so often, but that isn't true, each move gets more and more difficult. But as always I will try my best to keep my chin up!
