“Any transition is easier if you believe in yourself and your talent.” ~ Priyanka Chopra (Jonas)

“I suppose whenever you go through periods of transition, … it’s a very definite closing of a certain chapter of your life – I suppose those times are always going to be both very upsetting and also very exciting by the very nature because things are changing and you don’t know what’s going to happen.” ~ Daniel Radcliffe

At our stage of life, transitions are expected. Barry is trying to figure out when he wants retire so he can help me with my creative projects. It’s time to rethink and revamp what I’ve been doing. For example, I have had this website and written Sage Woman Chronicles for ten years now and though I will probably keep it here on WordPress, Story-Power is taking up a lot of data capacity. I need to move it to another host. 

Yesterday, Barry and I were looking at a couple of podcast hosting sites trying to figure out which one would help Story-Power grow, and help us monetize it as well. It’s nearly three years old and it’s time to make some changes. The format will stay the same, but it will be nice to tweak it a bit and earn a little extra income to add to our retirement. You know how it is, or maybe you don’t, but it’s nice to change the furniture around and do some decorating upgrades to your home every once in a while. Oh, and we’re switching internet companies, which will help with all the online stuff we do.

I’m happy that we’re making these little changes. I get bored if the same routine goes on too long. Transitions mean a fresh viewpoint and give me a chance to try something new without starting from scratch.

I’m not the only one in transition in our family. My mother is moving to a new facility where she can get more care. Mentally she’s still sharp, but physically she needs more help. We’ll have a new grand-nephew in a couple of months, and we will be going to the Pacific Northwest again to say goodbye to my cousin who died on Easter Sunday.

My brain is always working on some little tidbit and lately I’ve been thinking it’s time to go through all of our belongings and get rid of lots of things that we haven’t used in years. Barry and I have lived in this house for about 23 years and when you don’t move often things begin to pile up. So, that’s a retirement project for us as well.

It feels like I’m rambling, but transitions are kind of like the sand beneath your feet when the tide comes in, it shifts with the water, just like my thoughts and feelings. Since nothing is stable during a life transition, it’s good to have a sense of humor and expect the unexpected. 

That’s all for today. Thanks to those who have been with me from the beginning. It is lovely that you have stuck with me all these years. And welcome to my new followers. It’s nice to have you along for the ride.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
