I know it takes time to gather a group of friends and friendlies, and the fact that we're living out here in the park doesn't help. We haven't given up though. We have Mitzi & Ron and Serena. We have Sandra, who knew me through my beads and contacted me. Wonderful of her to do that. And now we've met Laurel and Eric because of my blog, and are going to have dinner with them this week. There is hope! If we come back here, which we will if Rick gets a permanent job with the county, we'll make the effort to get ourselves out there more and make some friends. I'm a little nervous because we never managed to do that in Seattle, even after 8 years of being very much out there running our pizza shop. Aside from a few very good friends made over time, Seattle was really hard to bust into. I hope Ashland isn't the same way, or we'll be tempted to go back to Taos.
Well, we are going back. The question is, for how long? When I'm not hyperventilating, I'm really entertained by all the little mysteries that are forming our life right now. Just have to keep smiling, keep trusting, and keep a paper bag handy. No matter what, remember to breathe.
