Nestled

Nestled in a safe place. Our new friends at the rabbit hole have graciously welcomed us to share their wonder & beauty in a tranquil lakeside orchard in California while we decompress and make a new plan. I don’t know how many times I can say it but I am so grateful for the kindness and love life offers.

As for the plan…well all we really know is the Multiple Sclerosis does not like the heat and it tells me by shutting me down. Brain turns to goo, legs stop working, hands close into compressed balls of uselessness, and the varieties of pain ensues. It’s something I wouldn’t wish on anybody.  We’ve already hit triple digits and the ice packs and air conditioning saved me again. Keith got an inflatable swimming pool and kept in the shade I can drop into it when I begin to shut down.  How incredible it is to watch my body reanimate by being submerged in cool water.

We’re thinking the Coast since its averaging 70 degrees or maybe up in the Puget Sound area of Washington which we have yet to explore. Considered going back East which would be wonderful because my brothers and sisters live there in NY. That just seems out of reach when its difficult for us to get as far as Washington at only an 8 hour drive.

One things for sure we are tired of living in the camper box and we are ready to settle…only the question of where.  For the moment we are wonderful and I feel safer here than I’ve felt anywhere in a long time. I’m working on a 7′ x 3′ oil on canvas commission and that means blissfulness. Keith is editing his books and painting an oceanic mural. I’m hanging my art in a local venue and things are looking up.
