Phases 

Hmm. Yes, even at my age, in finding that life still contains major phases. 

Mom has decided that she needs to leave the state to “heal, become my own person, and learn to be happy.”   I’ve decided that her move is actually good for both of us, and has the strong possibility for catharsis for us both. 

I got two tattoos yesterday.  A Watcher Symbol on my left wrist and the words “Just Begin” on my right forearm.  Maybe one day I’ll explain these, but you guys know me well enough to figure them out on your own. 

In 6 weeks, Donday will be married and moved – and mom will be in Hawaii.  I will transition to a life on my own and live in a big house by myself.  I love that house, and I thrive in solitude, so…

I’ll be fine.
