As we balance on the precipice of yet another move, it astounds me how things have come full circle. July 2010 saw me driving alone from TX to ND. Then we moved together to Germany and Turkey before coming back to ND. Now, in just a few days, I will be driving alone back to TX. B will follow me a week later, but still, I’ll be making that long drive alone. In the same way, back in 2010, I was just joining the AD military family. Now, B and I are bidding farewell to AD life and moving on to what comes after.
It’s comforting really. To think of these steps as the tying up of loose ends. Resolving story lines. Closing chapters.
There’s so much uncertainty in front of us. Where we’re going to live. What we’ll both be doing for a living.
Yet, when we first began our journey, all of that uncertainty was there. I don’t need to know the answers. Because they will come. And when they do, they’ll probably make me smile at the familiar arc.
It seems that all things in life come full circle. We’re beginning the next adventure by closing out the last. Life has looped around and we will pass go and begin the next circuit.
