Lyle, Washington Sunday, March 1, 2020 

Hi there,

I'm still here in the Columbia River Gorge. After bouncing from Lyle to Hood River to White Salmon then back to Hood River and, finally, back to Lyle, I've traveled no further than a 10 mile radius this month. At least no further in physical distance.

In emotional distance it feels like I've traveled life times. Have you ever felt that way? Of course you have, but I digress... 

I credit my emotional miles to my deep dive into existential thinking. Turns out even if you move from house to house every few days you still can't escape that inner voice.

Go figure. 

This deep dive involved a great deal of thought about my purpose and meaning. Through this I recognized that I have been asking myself the wrong question. 

It's not about asking, "What is my purpose?", it's about asking, "What will I make my purpose?". 

Gotcha, Universe!

This time also meant me observing and taking action to change the way I communicate. This isn't always easy to practice when you're only around pets for most of your waking hours. But trust me, you can have a pretty great conversation with several dog breeds. 

The links I've included here are the results of these musings. I hope they get you thinking, feeling, or acting differently. Or, as I always say, I at least hope they bring a smile to your face.
