"...any extended absence in the career of an individual to achieve something. In the modern sense, one takes a sabbatical typically to fulfill some goal......."
This weekend began my 7 week journey of self discovery, growth, change, and hopefully a little fun. The purpose of this time and travel is to study, to absorb, and to learn how to be a better practitioner, teacher, and human being. I fully realize how very fortunate I am to have this opportunity. From my partner in life, to my parents, to students, and to mentors who along the way encourage me to follow my dreams and my heart I say a big thank-you.
Yesterday when I woke up I realized the position I was in. A strange sensation crept over me when I realized the time has finally come. All the preparation is done. A little fear, a little excitement, and a little worry were all there bubbling away at the surface. Wondering how I will do staying mostly alone in a place I am not all that familiar with. Then travelling with someone I am just getting to know. To be away from my home, whats familiar and the people and pets I hold dear.
I will continue to write when the moment arises.
