“You have as much laughter as you have faith.” 
― Martin Luther

PS for those of you following along at home, I took a job as the director of a tiny little annex school of littles and the Mr. took a supply chain job for a big company that will help him learn a lot.  Both of us were employed exactly 33 days after landing in Portland.  Now, we're looking for a home and our girl's will be with us soon.

So, in other words, we took a giant leap of faith and we stuck the landing.  ♥  I'm full of gratitude and awe.  And, I love being home in Portland again.

“Love.

Because of you, in gardens of blossoming
Flowers I ache from the perfumes of spring.
I have forgotten your face, I no longer
Remember your hands; how did your lips
Feel on mine?

Because of you, I love the white statues
Drowsing in the parks, the white statues that
Have neither voice nor sight.

I have forgotten your voice, your happy voice;
I have forgotten your eyes.

Like a flower to its perfume, I am bound to
My vague memory of you. I live with pain
That is like a wound; if you touch me, you will
Make to me an irreperable harm.

Your caresses enfold me, like climbing
Vines on melancholy walls.

I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to
Glimpse you in every window.

Because of you, the heady perfumes of

“Well, now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you

If you think it long and mad the wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots
Remember
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land” 
― Pablo Neruda, Selected Poems

One of the things I've been playing with is an old school Lensbaby.  It's sometimes tricksy to get what I want, but the painter in me (and the chaos artist in me) LOVES it.  Focus is all in your perspective.

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right


Mr Kiki hooked up the computer.  We're still couch surfing and setting up our lives, but now I can post pictures again!   I  have to say, I got kinda spoiled using the school fancy pants Mark iii.  Going back to my janky little T1i has been a reminder in just what you can and can't push with tech.  But as always, I court the chaos.  

Happy Spring, Blossoms!

I miss having access to my computer.  I have new work, but no way to share it with you.  We've landed and been caught by our community in Portland.  I have a Primary Teacher and Director job at a lovely little school and just started training this past week.  Eric is interviewing.  Things seem to be on the move.  

Our littles stayed behind with Grandma and Granpa for stability - we're doing this leap of faith style without jobs lined up and selling everything we own to go home.  So far, we've been so supported and loved.  Here's hoping the good juju carries us through and we land soon.  I miss my babies something fierce and though the blessings are flowing, it won't feel like home until my little family is back together again.  Until then, I'm just hanging out in this strange space mid-leap and trying to stick the landing.

Life feels a bit surreal.

Just Checking in. It's been two weeks - we've been in Portland for 1. We are still couch surfing and probably will be for another month at the very least. Eric is still looking for work. I have accepted a job as a teacher and director for a local Early Childhood Center that I absolutely adore and is 100% in line with my philosophy of care. Things are going nicely and we have been very supported and blessed. I am thankful.

Here are a few shots from Oregon - cellphone because I don't have my computer up and running for edits on the "big camera." I am in constant awe of the beauty and so very thankful to be home.

I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.”
