Endings and Beginnings

Well, I am no longer on Okambara. Today I fly home to the USA. I’ve enjoyed my time there so much–sometimes more than others depending on the group dynamics–and I will always carry a piece of Okambara and the animals and my experiences there over the last two years with me.

I spread the last of my Dad’s ashes this week while working here on the Biosphere Expedition’s Namibia project . I spread the first half into the Gulf Stream while working on Biosphere Expedition’s Azores project.

It’s a time of endings–letting go–of regrets, what-ifs and long held beliefs. I won’t be returning to Namibia next year as I’ve decided to stay closer to home the next two years and focus on my own projects. I’ve also decided not to return to the Azores next year.

It’s a time of beginnings because I have signed up to lead Biosphere’s Peru project next year. New project, new part of the world. Other new projects include launching my motorcycle tours for women, and staying closer to home and seeing what kind of life I can lead in Southern California. So many exciting things on the horizon.
