  • The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars...

    Time has once again fallen away from my grasp and my life has taken off in many new directions. I am working very part time in wine (one day a week) and the rest has been acting work, VO work, and people paying me back the loans I made them. I imagine I will ultimately be making enough to stop that one day of wine. I was cast in an infomercial. Eight weeks have gone by and I have two more weeks of workouts with a trainer in a group setting three times a week. Just a little bit more of not only being Keto/Primal but also limiting kcals to 1200 a day. I'm lean. I have muscles, energy and great cardio stamina! Yes, I am happy. Yes, there are more good things on the horizon. Yes, yes, yes.

    True Brit was a true twit. As usual I don't care to rehash it all but suffice it to say he was a player and a not very good one at that. I tipped his hand to another woman, exposed his duplicitousness and stopped someone else from investing all of their energies into his pathetic self. I must say it is the ultimate closure. To be done with someone of his ilk is a gift from the gods. The Frenchman has moved away to the same coastal town in which we started our relationship. We text from time to time but he is off on his search and I am off on mine never to come together again. I rather like being single although I've pretty much been just that this whole year (Mr. Brit notwithstanding). I don't mind being alone. It's the best way to elicit change within and to really figure out what's next.

    The best news of all is that I am going to go to France in April. I'm doing a pilgrimage of sorts (yep, just like they did in the Middle Ages) from Le Puy to either Conque or Moissac. It's beautiful country and 10 - 20 days of walking 20 - 25 kms a day in a part of the country where it's unlikely I will not speak any English while I am there. After that, I will be off to Paris to celebrate my birthday (alone but happy!) with good Champagne and laughter and joy. I tried to start an advanced French class today but the students there were much less savvy than hoped. I know that France will be life changing for some reason and adventures are always top of my lists so voilà.

    I have so very much to be thankful for tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

      Your France plan sounds very exciting. I am envious! I invite every opportunity for adventure, but often responsibility (work/bills) get in the way of what I really want to do. I am trying my best to keep my health up so that if I can find a way to retire, I can do some of those things then.
