New wind rising

              Sailing to Bluer Skies by The TheExtentofSilence

There are some new winds rising for us in near future. We need to set up our sails, and get ready. There will be yet another relocation, another departure and another arrival. As always, in front of New Beginnings, one feels rather manic-depressive: there's great excitement about the new steps, new opportunities, whilst feeling great sadness in our hearts from leaving loved ones and safe life behind. In this unsettled waves, I've taken quite a comfort from the following quotes, as well as these beautiful items made by fellow Etsians.

I know not what the future holds, but I know who holds the future. ~Author Unknown

New key to our new life by That Something

If you would attain to what you are not yet, you must always be displeased by what you are. For where you are pleased with yourself there you have remained. Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing. ~Saint Augustine
Loving pebbles on departure by Sjengraving

You can avoid having ulcers by adapting to the situation: If you fall in the mud puddle, check your pockets for fish. ~Author Unknown

Crisp, clean pillow to rest my head after the travels by CreekBedThreads
