Posts Tagged ‘Arizona’


A couple of weeks ago I returned home from my journey to Arizona.  It’s taken me some time to adjust to the extreme change in climate, coming from that hot, arid and higher elevation, back to Vermont’s much moister climate and lower elevation.  There were so many layers to this journey that I’m still  exploring and processing.  This journey was one of the most healing experiences I’ve ever had, and went way beyond my wildest imaginings.

I am still in awe over this amazing reconnection between my sister Jan and me.   I absolutely knew that Jan and I were going to have a wonderful time together.  But I also had some trepidations – after all, we have not slept in the same room in 40 years.  I’m happy to report that we enjoyed each other and slept pretty good.

We deliberately planned to explore some areas of Arizona that were new to both of us, while having time to reconnect with each other.  Jan and I were very intentional about this trip, both for our individual selves and for our relationship.  I had prayed and meditated about our coming together being positive, and even asked our Mom and Grandma to help guide us back together.  Jan  kept saying she really was wanting to learn something new.  Prayers are often answered, in ways that we least expect, and in our case very delightful ways.

Please enjoy some of the photos Jan took of our adventures.
