addendum

I have also just added an addendum to my August 9 (last day of work) post.  You can find it below the dashed line on that day’s post, “Goodbyes are so hard.”

Addendum to addendum:  The FIRST time I blushed on my last day of work was as I was orienting a group of nine people who wished to buy permits to enter the Fiery Furnace without a ranger.  I was in the video room with them.  Detecting a familiar accent in one gentleman, I asked, “Are you from North Carolina?”  “South Carolina,” he drawled back.  “Oh, my first kiss was in SC,” I blurted out before I could even think what I was saying.  Everyone watched my very tan face turn red as I realized that I had just told this bunch of strangers something very personal!  They laughed.  I shook it off and continued the orientation process, chuckling.  I am so darn professional.

After three nights in my own bed, I have had two similar dreams.  I am making preparations to go somewhere, but the destination is definitely unclear.  I look at my watch, and it tells me unmistakably, (Go) Now.

 

I do not awaken unsettled and apprehensive — but ready and willing.
