Seeking tranquility

 Overall, I'm doing pretty good considering we have been between homes for such a long time. However, there are days that are inexplicably harder than others. Yesterday was one of those days for me.

I was missing Heather. I was missing Coco and Shay. I was missing having our own home.

The feeling of overwhelm swept over me and I could feel myself spiralling. Irrational fears started to pierce my usually impenetrable outer layer, particularly around money. 

I knew I needed to do something to shift the energy so I hopped in the car and went for a drive. Google maps took me all the way to Okotoks from northwest Calgary. I needed familiarity, so I grabbed a cappuccino and quiche from 94 Take the Cake and sat on their patio, with all of the falling leaves. 

I went to the Tranquility Pond, or what you might call Waller Park, and did our traditional loop around the path, across the stream and through the forest. I noticed a beaver had been busy and dropped a tree. That was strangely comforting to me.
By the time I completed the loop and got back into my car, the energy had shifted. I drove back to northwest Calgary where we enjoyed a wonderful Sunday evening meal and visit with Kathryn's parents.
