TTT: Critical Mass






Forces aligned, openings materialized, and a trip off the rock came into full view and was created.

In other words, after four long years away, I am returning to my homeland over the October Intercession.

My second (side) job is blossoming with promise and I had an opportunity to expand my business with this trip. It seems meant to be as things fell into place quite easily.

I have not seem my mom since the insanity of summer 2010. Those of you who have been here awhile know what I am talking about.

So I thought I'd pay her a visit. The death of a dear friend last week reminded me of the fragility of life. Despite the craziness that is my mom, it was time.

Ying and Yang.

Work and family.

It's all sorting out. Or not. Either way, it will be what it will be.

Critical Mass (Preponderance of the Great)

In an atom, when CRITICAL MASS is reached, it is a time when several heavy particles are occupying the same space, thereby creating extraordinary events and catastrophic chain reactions. In much the same way, the current situation is becoming weighted with a great many considerations. There are numerous decisions pending, the air is full of ideas with all their ensuing multifarious possibilities, and the ponderous affairs of the people around you are pushing into the foreground. All of it is important, serious, and meaningful, and all of it is coming to a head right now.

Travel tip? Not so much. After my trip to LA, I am sure I'll have tips to share. Meanwhile, feel free to link on up.

Ah, Pseudo, I'm sorry for your loss. It does sound like things are aligning for you, as they ought to. I wish you more peaceful and smooth transitions.

I have only recently started following your blog. Your writing draws me in and I just read several Spin Cycle entries. I hope this transition is a good one for you... and I just wanted to say how powerful and poignant your writing is when you are examining your family. Forgiveness got to me. Anyway, I have a lot of catching up to do to be able to be even VAGUELY articulate in any comments.

I sure am glad I've started following your blog, though!

I'm sorry for your loss and hope your trip ends up being more sweet than bitter. Travel safely and take time to care for your soul.

I tried to link both of my blogs to your TTT, but they didn't link.

Sorry, no travels for me this week! But I'm glad you're getting a chance to go back to the "mainland" for a bit. It sounds like you have some good behind-the-scenes stuff going for you. :)

I'm sorry for your loss. Life is such a mixed bag... Ups and downs. But ups come again.

I'm sorry about your friend, and it's true - life is so short, and fragile and it's awful reminders that we get too often that keep us reminded of that. I'm thinking of you, and wishing you a peaceful trip and not much craziness. :)

Enjoy your visit!

I had a comment for you, but then I saw Brian's mention of "this is bitter sweat" and now I can't remember what I was going to say.

I don't think he knows you well enough to make that call.
