bus stations

i am in detroit right now at the greyhound; there are not a lot of people around; a small girl is walking around free, content with bare feet... things are fairly peaceful...

after having only 4 hours of sleep 2 nights ago, and still not getting everything done (churchmouse and cathedral dweller helping me out tons with this) (packing an apartment during holy week -- i really do not advise it!) i made it to london ontario and my aunt took me out to a late lunch and i got to rest, talk lots when i wanted to, use her deep clawfoot tub and enjoying being in a very dutch house...

i am still exhausted; have been aware of being in grief from leaving my ottawa church and my spiritual father; it is different than when i left st. herman's. just as hard, but different circumstances.

it is has been hard to look forward to the summer in london, even though i only have 3 classes, will be able to rest a bit, will have my soon to be Cute Cat Cleo. the grief of leaving right now is so fresh and deep that nothing seems significant compared to the pain of leaving.

when i left st. herman's i barely talked for three days. okay i also had a really bad cold, but if you know me you know that it takes a lot to keep me THAT quiet!

well. i will not have much time to write at home, but once i am settled in london i hope to blog a bit more than i was able to before.

CHRIST IS RISEN!

may He rise also in our hearts, the Great Morning Star...

You moved?

How are things now?

You packed during Holy Week? Ouch. I defended a thesis... that's not a good idea either. If you're like me it doesn't take much to get distracted.

wow. i am now in London ON; was in Michigan 4 days and moved myself, some of my belongings and Cleo the Cat. i am still a bit shell shocked to be honest -- like not wanting to leave my apartment, which is still not fully unpacked -- and i need a bookshelf. will be back online Monday...
