So This is It

My last few moments in Raton, NM. The final bags are waiting to go downstairs, and as soon as I pack this laptop I will close the door on this chapter of my life. I am eager to go home: to be with my husband, reconnect with friends, see family and my kitties! Yet there is a certain poignancy as I look around at this apartment that once again looks as it did when I first entered – not quite mine. I look out my window to this amazing vista – and that is actually what I will miss the most. I have met some wonderful people and had fantastic experiences while I was here. And I think that I have experienced some inner growth myself – a kind of confidence that can only come from putting knowledge and skills to the test – not only my knowledge as a nurse, but also inner knowing of ‘okay-ness’ as I faced challenges that presented themselves to me while I was here.

No Raton is not the place for me long term, but it has been a good stay and I, for one, took the “road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference”.
