I am the most flexible person in my family. That is, I am the one who is generally most willing to roll with the punches, adjust and adapt as necessary, and generally find a silver lining to any cloud. But, with all the change over the last few years – me, the flexible one – I’m ready to settle in for a while. But, when we get ready to settle in, life often has different plans, and adapt and adjust is the modus operandi of the day.

I know it’s unrealistic to want stagnation, the comfort of routine, every day.

One change I must make tonight is closing this post, this pontification on change – so that I may change and go to bed. I am sleepy! Here’s to creating better routines to fulfill my obligations and flow with change is it will always come, like the tide and the full moon.

The journey back to Portland, high above the clouds, prompts reflections on the comforts of home and the complexities of travel.
