I wish that I had some brilliant excuse for why I haven’t blogged in a month. But it would be just that, an excuse and why bother. There’s a part of my life lately that I wish I could be watching from a distance. It’s surprising to me to see and to feel, as somehow if I could just separate myself enough, maybe it’ll make sense. Maybe not.

Earlier this week my dedication to a certain unnamed band (ahem Nickel Creek) was tested. They’ve booked a last minute concert in Bloomington. And God bless them, they booked it the exact same day I’ve got tickets to see The Fray here in Indy. I was a little concerned that my friend who’s seeing the show with me wouldn’t truly understand my moral dilemma. But she pulled through, we’re selling the Fray and going to see Nickel Creek. What’s that you ask? Yes, I do have tickets to see them the following day in Cincinnati. So what? That might be the two best days I’ve had in a row in a really really long time. :) So, crisis averted.

Seems like this must be the time in life to see all your friends go through major changes. At least these are good changes. With the big 28 coming up at the end of this month for me, I’ve found myself a little more introspective than usual. Oh who am I kidding? I’m always way too introspective. Anyway, it’s interesting to see, even more interesting to experience. I’ve got a sense of peace in my life right now that I honestly don’t feel like I’ve had in such a long time. I’m not sure what that means, but it seems like for the first time in a really really long time, I’m not too worried about it. I’m being constantly reminded that life isn’t in what’s going to happen tomorrow, but in the living of today. I think I’ve been overlooking that lately. A couple years ago, I was in this quaint little store in some tiny store in Kentucky with my family and I came across a piece of painted pottery. Maybe I’ve mentioned it on my blog before, who knows. Anyway, it was a crude painting of a girl standing at the top of a mountain with her arms stretched wide to the sky. And it simply said, I am exactly where I am supposed to be. That image has just stayed in my head. And lately, that’s exactly what I’ve felt.

It's kind of a nice change.
