17 August 2008 | Washington State
First night in a house last night was an airplane today a room that does not move, a toilet that flushes a shower in its own room it keeps changing for last night it was on the beach in Hawaii and look out for the stairs! Houses the human maze we create and find comfort in opposed o the cocoon of a boat. Do you think I can sleep? I hope so it has been a long time. I had my favorite soup at a small Taverniern in Stevenson Washington after the long day in Portland I was pie eyed and famished. Hawaii and Portland have such polite drivers no has given me the finger yet, honked or cursed especially polite for I am way out of practice for driving and the city is moving too fast and I am clueless to where I am going. I am so grateful God is watching over me I am clueless as to where I am for the most part. Transition waiting on the for sure! Wisdom from Renee explaining to me that I am o.k. just in transition waiting on the for sure. I like this it helps.Tonights drive along the river was heavenly the moon rising over the mountains reflecting on the river the winding road going through rock tunnels and the train light working its way through the mountain side. I am in Trevor's shiny black truck which I purchased at the end of the day my home for the time being. Here I am. The Columbian River Gorge winding forming a liquid valley between Oregon and Washington what a special place, magic is in the air , the breath of God, breathing, moving, silent, dark, mysterious, inviting, filling my emptiness with life. Gabriella is out at sea for night #2 making way rolling up the crest of waves only to come down to rise up again continual motion. I remember the peace. I remember the movement and I miss the freedom.
