Adventures in the Purple Membrane
Sometime in the first part of this year it feels like I crossed over into an alternative - and unexpected - universe. T.R. and I have talked extensively about it and we've come to refer to it as the Purple Membrane. The Purple Membrane appears to be a universe of unexpected change. Unexpected change in my personal life. Unexpected change in my professional life. It is causing me to watch the way things are unfolding more closely, from a slightly different perspective. It is like, as I go through this season of change, I am watching the changes unfolding all around me - equal parts participant and observer. I am learning to simply let things go, to try and accept "what is". That is not an easy thing - but it is an interesting thing. I can feel the turmoil of various emotional states rising up in me, and when I become aware of them, I let them go. Not always completely, not always successfully, but enough that I have moved rather smoothly through the waves of change that seem to be crashing all around me.
