I’m not sure I would go as far as saying that I’m in the bardo right now, but as the days go on, I am certainly feeling more and more like I am between two worlds. Today, we visited the kids’ schools and picked up paperwork to get them enrolled for the fall. I switched out mailing addresses for two credit card bills. And we drove around peeking in windows of homes for sale. But I also answered a bunch of emails relating to work back in Georgia and spent a chunk of time commenting on student work and posting grades online.
It’s going to be critical for me to maintain a balance–not just between where I’m at and where I’m going to be, but also amidst the dozen directions I’m sure I will feel myself being pulled. And that’s part of the reason why I am keeping tonight’s entry short. I was up late last night writing, and right now my family is waiting on me to start watching a movie. So a few words here now, some time with my family, and then off to bed.
All things in moderation, and in balance. Even these daily meditations!
