Transitions

Winter became spring, spring became summer, summer became heat wave, draught and then became autumn just like that. It all happened so fast. Weeks became months became years. Now, looking back, I think it has all happened so fast. All of it.
My whole life in an instant. This past weeks, months,  in merely a glimpse.
Are these transitions not happening faster than they used to?
Has time it self changed?

Sometimes I wonder.

I have read that the migrating birds… some of them have stopped migrating, due to climate change. They arrive earlier, leave later, sometimes they don´t show up at all. Like: when the leaves were getting brown and falling to towards the ground this summer. Corroding before their time. It was horrifying. I mean; what if I can´t look to the sky and tell if it is autumn or spring by the directions of the birds or the color of the leaves?

So I wonder;  if time itself is changing, if the transitions are happening faster than anticipated (and I think they are) how can we respond, what can we think, what can we do?
I have given this a lot of thought.
What if I am changing? What if I am no longer who I used to be?
How do we live during times of great transitions?

You know I do think I have some experience in this.
I don´t need to know what comes next, I don´t need to construct a plan, plans are no longer useful, adaptability is. This is my experience.
My experience is this; it is not the plan that is important.

I can just write here, I can say; hello.
It dosn´t have to be more than that.
We can say hello.

(I have updated the homepage, I now offer walks, I might begin to blog again, I don´t know, my next book is almost finished, thank you, I hope you are doing well)

  1. Tak tak tak Andrea for at dele dine tanker netop i dag, netop nu. De kom perfekt for at give mig mod på fremtiden uden plan men med tilpasningsevnen i front. ❤

  2. How good to see a post from you , Andrea! Since you last wrote, my family and I have gone through many transitions, too, the main one a move to the mountains. This is something we have contemplated for many years. My husband and I went to school in the mountains and we have long, long felt the drawing back to that life. With our boys, it is all the more right. We all were fish-out-of-water for so long and now we feel at home and are building our own home nestled into the hill side. I fins I want that nestled feeling the older I get. Don’t want to stick out and be too exposed in spirit or in my physical surroundings. Hope all is well with you and yours. 🙂

    1. That sounds so wonderful! I do know the feeling of being like a fish out of water. A nestled home into a hillside would kind of be my dream too i think… forest and mountains and the ocean, if I could get all of that combined it would be the best 🙂

  5. Så fint skrevet – og vi er mange, der synes tiden går hurtigere med en blanding af velkendthed og foruroligende uforudsigeligt hvad vejret angår… Kommer din næste bog snart? Har ventet på fortsættelsen siden “Og den store flugt” udkom… Håber alt er godt i skoven, Christina
