First off, thank you. Thank all of you for just being so awesome.
When the shit hit the fan and I was lost and broken, the first thing I thought was, “I am going to be with loved ones. No matter what I do next, I will be around love.” And the first place I thought of was my former home, Jackson Hole.
So I sent out an email. A very desperate email…. only made more pathetic by the fact that we are in a recession and EVERYONE is looking for a job. I wrote to about twelve people, telling them that essentially, “I am lost, I have nothing, but I want to be around you guys and I trust it will be okay. Does anyone know of anything?”
The next morning, my inbox was bursting and my heart was full. Amazing encouragement from such beautiful people. Friends stepping up and being there for me in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I physically felt like I was being wrapped up in hugs, letting me collapse into friends with teared, “Thank you”s. I have multiple random part-time jobs lined up and offers for couches galore until I find a place. I’m gonna make it. It’s going to be okay. Love.
So, on June 16th I will leave Sydney at 1:10pm and arrive just ten minutes later [1:20pm, June 16th] in LA. Then from there, I’ll have a red-eye through Denver [where I’ll hopefully get to see K$] and then onward to Jackson. Hallelujah.
Packing up my life, I got to look through the little bits that I take with me everywhere. I found a card that my friend, Dan Long, had given me for a birthday, right before I left to work in Yosemite. It made me cry…
“…We’ve had some amazing times that I’ll never forget. You may be following your heart to Yosemite, but I know it will lead you back to us soon…”
Yes and yes.
I am very excited about this move… though it is weird and will be hard for a bit… I know it will be okay.
