Since I will be moving soon, I thought I would write a piece about traveling and writing.
Just to be clear, this is Debs that will be moving, not your illustrious host, so that way you should not be sending Samuel any emails asking when he is moving.
have traveled a lot through my young life, I will not mention how many years that will be here very soon, but it has been a lot and in that time I have learned a lot about the lifestyle. It is not a lifestyle for everyone and many cannot handle it. I know that even I, raised in a military family and then a roving soul myself, have started to grow weary of not having a place to call my permanent home.
As I get ready to pick up sticks and move to Ft. Lauderdale, I am thinking that I would like for this to be my last move. I find myself with a person that I might like to settle down with and to a city, so I am told, is great for raising a family. I find myself looking back at all I have seen and all I have done and feel empty.
It is not because I do not like all that I have seen and done. I have enjoyed life and shared my tales with many through my writing. But most of the time it has been through the voices of other names. Like the one I am using now, I have never been myself when I share these tales. So you might say that I have been living other lives and other voices.
The chance I am being given will allow me to tell my stories and experiences through my own voice and with my real identity. Unfortunately I will not be sharing that name here, so do not ask. It will be a writing position where I will have a desk for the first time in my life that is not in my own house. I will have people wandering aimlessly around me with that same blank, lost expression that people tend to get when they are in a cubicle farm.
I am not belittling the new role I will have, in fact the feeling of having an office or cubicle is so rereshing to me that it is exciting. I will have a new, refreshing, level of monotony in my life, a regularity that I have not had before. I will not have to always search for something to write about, many times it will be handed to me.
I will miss writing things like this, and who knows… Maybe I will hand a story to Samuel from time to time and have him post it. We shall see.
I have two more articles in my commitment to this site and I am going to make them good for you guys. But I would like to, before I forget, thank Samuel for letting me be apart of this and best wishes to Rian, his other writer.
