So fellow travelers, so much to do as departure day edges closer. Found myself unable to focus on anything for long today, wandering from laundry room to garden to my desk. A little packing, lots of weeding, attempts at writing ( I will get the PDX series done before Tokyo!) Even a good long walk with my dog did not settle my spirits. Then as dusk scattered golden light through the trees I heard music at the pond. As I sat quietly this haiku rose from the lily pads.
My soul is restless
drifting too soon down the path
frog song call me back
Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready
