Just when you think you've got your life in some sort of order - things change. Things you didn't 'see' impinge on your life and your direction is forced to change. It is like driving a car with a destination in mind, but a range of road blocks or challenges jump out and you have to detour.
I have been house sitting for some time, and this weekend I was moving from one house in the western suburbs of Brisbane (Paddington) to one in the eastern/bayside suburb of Wakerley and all was on track but my father's health has deteriorated in Adelaide, so midst moving I have had to change plans and fit in a trip to Adelaide. This week all air traffic in Australia has been disrupted by the volcanic ash which floated across the skies from Chile and made air travel unsafe.
As well I had other events - speaking at a forum, doing some research on Literacy and Numeracy - along with some family issues that were disrupting.
Meanwhile I try to focus on my studies too - and finish of my China Story and the Irish Story.........
Plus I have been doing the 31 Days Blog Challenge and sleep is evading me at the moment. My head is spinning with the overload.
But that is life's twists and turns.
