On October 30th, 2016, I will take the first true vacation from work I’ve had in five years. I specify it as a ‘true’ vacation because I became terribly sick during each of the times I’ve taken off prior to this one. I’m crossing my fingers that this doesn’t happen again.


I need a break, from work, from writing, from the internet; I need a break from everything, really. I need some time to reflect, for introspection and spiritual healing. Last year I heavily researched Samhain and discovered the spiritual core of the three day holiday, and thankfully I was able to schedule my vacation surrounding this holiday. I intend to celebrate it as well as I can, and with that in mind, I’ll be doing a few things.


I’ll be unplugging, for one. I won’t be spending any time on the internet over that time, and I’ll be avoiding most phone calls as well. No Netflix, no Facebook, no email, no corresponding on my writing sites. I may decide to write some, but only as the spirit moves me, and definitely not before that happens.


I’ll also spend some time going through some of the stuff I’ve been holding onto for years. I have a gigantic suitcase full of old papers, notes, cards . . . things I wanted to remember, but that I’ve never gone back to review. It’s time to get rid of some of my baggage. Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.


With any luck I’ll also spend a good portion of this time around a fire, contemplating the renewing energy of flame and hopefully gaining some insight into my life. I’m ready for a change, and I’m eager to figure out how to do it.


Please be patient if you try to contact me during the next week. I’ll be rather difficult to find. But in the end, hopefully, I’ll be somewhere closer to where I want to be.


Peace and love,
