It’s a mystery

On our way back home from Kansas City, we talked.  It had only been a week in regular time, but what a week!  So much had changed.  Decisions had been made, our minds seemingly made up.  Now, we only had to change our entire lives.  Easy, right?

First off, our loft.  We love our loft.  We love the lifestyle that our loft affords us.  It’s beautiful.  But, it’s expensive.  We don’t own it, so we don’t have to worry about selling it.  But we do have to let it go.

That begs the question: so where do we go?  Well, that gets tricky.  The honest truth is, we’re not sure.  And the rest of the honest truth is, that’s okay.  We’re not homeless through poverty and lack of choices.  We’re prosperous in options!  There are places we’ve been invited to stay, other ideas that we might explore.  Come spring, we may go camping for a few months and see parts of the country that we’ve never seen before.  The Universe, in typical fashion, has offered us an abundance of ways to live.  We feel completely supported and know that we’re not going to fall.

The other component to this is that it’s simply not time for us to know where we’re going to be yet.  That’s two and a half months away.  Which is an eon for us right now.  Things are happening so fast we can barely keep up with whether something happened earlier today, yesterday, or last week.  Thinking this far ahead in this time warp that we are living in is just nearly impossible.  There’s so much we’re trying to wrap our heads around in the here and now, let alone something this far off.

I know this sounds odd, and perhaps terribly irresponsible.  I know this.  And if I were you, I’d probably be shaking my head right now and wondering whether Luna is sane.  Well, yes and no.

Honestly, you just kind of have to know us to know why this crazy logic works for us.  Even my daughter, who did not inherit the crazy-off-the-wall genetic makeup of her parents, agrees.  It’s just us, just how we are.  So if you do know us, hopefully you get it, and if your first contact with us is through these words, you’ll just have to trust me on this one.  We’re not irresponsible, we’re not whacked-out.  We may be a little heady with the freedom that we’ve found, but we believe that this all makes total sense.

Like the man in “Shakespeare in Love” keeps saying, “All will be well.”

“How will it?” comes the reply.

He answers, “I don’t know.  It’s a mystery.”

It’s a wonderful, wonderful mystery.  It will play itself out when the time is right.  I have utter, utter faith in this and I don’t worry.  I’m not very good at quoting the bible any more, but I know that there’s something in there about not worrying about what you will eat or drink.

So.  We’re giving some things away, and for the things we want to keep, we’re renting a storage unit.  In there will go most everything except what we’re taking with us to South Africa.  Then, after we get back, we’ll see where we are going to live, what we are going to eat, and what we are going to drink.  Who knows?  Things could be, probably will be, drastically different by then.


Yep.  And…nope.

All will be well, and all manner of things will be well.  I invite you to affirm this with me.


It’s a mystery.

  1. That which you manifest is before you and you are proving it! (As We All are.) The gravy is realizing your power and having the ability to test it out. A wonderfully vast world has been created by ones who have dared to test their tethers. Risking and straining their stakes which hold them to their identity and state of being, they dared to strike out and seek new identities and new ways to tether. I blissfully sigh and gasp at all the opportunities this endeavor allows, knowing that there is no knowing, and that there is always somwhere to place one’s stake.
    Love and gratitude.

  2. Dang, Splendor. You have named yourself well. And splendid, you are.

    Thank you for visioning this with us.

    The next couple of posts will be all about freaking out. I talk a good game sometimes, and then I forget and miss the mark and splat. It’s all a part of the process.

    Love you!!

  3. The one thing that reading this blog does for me is, it makes me really excited for you, as if what was happening for you was happening for me !! It’s such a great story. And the truth of it is, it’s so exciting to read, that it makes it desirous to want it to happen for me ! Not the exact same experience, mind you, but who knows what the Universe has planned ? My thoughts, while I’m reading this blog are, I want this for ME !!! And so, my learning belief is that this is how the Universe teaches, moves us out of our doldrums…. by helping us get so excited that we start getting back to dreaming about possibilities, possibilities that maybe we’d had say during our creative energy days (for some, high school, for others, who knows ?). The question now is what are out dreams, and how do we get started ? My guess is, all we need say is, Okay Universe, I’m ready, I’m so ready !! Thank you thank you thank you !!

    • Oh, gosh, this makes me so happy to read. I’m so glad you’re finding inspiration in this! Thank you so much for writing and letting me know you’re enjoying it. Tell your friends! 🙂

  4. Oh Kelly you are so funny! I can remember before I went on my first volunteer trip to South Africa. I had NO IDEA what to expect. I knew soooo little about S.A. I wasn’t prepared for the first world conditions of Cape Town nor the extreme level of poverty, etc. in the ‘informal settlement’ areas. I expected the kids to be famished, sick and helpless. What I found was the most beautiful open-hearted kids I have ever encountered anywhere! I totally believe they are masters who have come at this time and in the midst of the pandemic in order to teach the entire world some powerful lessons.
    Wow it is getting soon now…can’t wait to travel with you!
