Floating towards new adventures….

rose petals

Here we have gentle rain falling on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Full of Mum’s yummy Sunday lunch, and with the phone service being surprisingly quiet, I am taking the opportunity to write.

Over the last few days many strands are coming together, weaving into a tapestry that I am excited about.

A few years ago, in Mediumship class, we were all taught to trust and just let the words flow, but to also pay attention to what we were doing with our bodies. The clues to parts of the messages we were channeling were in our stance and the mannerisms we were displaying. I have long held the belief that we create our lives through our thoughts, words and actions and if we reflect (without fear) on what has transpired, we can read the signposts along our path.

My path has been moving me towards writing my first book and I have been searching for a framework to hang it off. This has so far eluded me.

Reflecting on the last few years, all roots that I have planted have not taken, and my various homes have all been temporary. There have been many gifts from each stage, but I have been ‘rootless’. From this an idea has floated up in the last few days and it has settled comfortably within.

I am going to float and travel about being a house and pet sitter. WiFi means that I can work on the phone service using Skype, and I can submit my writing commissions from anywhere. Marvelous! I am then open to whatever life flows my way: new adventures, lovely animals to care for, different views every few weeks and a framework for my first book.

Bless Mum and Dad for being my ‘springboard’ and the caretakers of my treasures, Emily for understanding and supporting me all the way and David for wishing me well and storing my bike, furniture and acting as my postal service.

I need a few weeks to gather my ‘stuff’, earn some pennies and get the necessary paperwork sorted. Then it’s ‘Pants over tights and flick my cape’ time.

My loved ones are in for some exciting postcards…… X

    Look! Up in the sky. It’s a bird, it’s a plane….no, it’s SuperJane!

    You are quite an adventurist and I look forward to hearing every little morsel of this adventure. Will you consider work across the pond? We have two critters that may someday need your TLC.

      Oh what a lovely thought Al, I would love to come and care for your lovely Bella and Queenie and your home. I am starting out in the UK, mainly so I am on the same lump of land for Emily, my daughter, but she is travelling abroad in the summer and I think I will head to France or Spain on a house sit then, if I can. France I think. Once I get my ‘wings’ for this, and Emily is OK, I will start to venture further afield. So long as I have WiFi, I can go anywhere. I felt it was time to stretch beyond myself for a while…you remember that saying in the eighties ‘feel the fear and do it anyway?’…a bit like that! X

        As further enticement, we do have WiFi here in the house! Also, a fresh water lake in the back and the Chesapeake Bay is one block away in the other direction. We need you for a week in mid-September. I’ll be taking my bride on a cruise for her 70th birthday. No pressure!

          You are fab Al, you and Patty are both lucky to have each other. x It seems a quantum leap to come Stateside from where I am right now, but between you and me, I just Googled flights to Richmond, VA. Let me ponder… πŸ™‚

    Oh Jane! This has given me goosebumps! What a wonderful idea you have arrived at. I do so hope this comes together for you. I am so exoted for you, the new adventure sounds wonderful. You will be a beautiful animal carer, just get those pants, tights and cape ready!

    Let’s celebrate with a cuppa. I think this calls for the teapot with a porcelain snail on the lid, for no particular readon other than he keeps winking! πŸ˜„ lots of love and hugs xxx ❀


    • 18 Jane Thorne March 2, 2014 at 5:08 pm

      Oh Chris, perfect teapot choice…we can share many cuppas as I travel about and imagine all the things we will have to natter about. Much love and hugs to you for all your love and support. ❀ Xxxx
