It’s always interesting, the experience of anticipating a big event for several weeks, and it keeps getting closer and closer, and then it’s just a few days away, then tomorrow, and finally you wake up that morning, and the first thing you think is today’s the day. It’s here.
That’s what happened to me today. Which is, of course the day we left the California desert and began our journey of 3,000 miles, back across the country…all the way to Western Massachusetts.
I got up, did some last minute packing, went for a last dip in the pool, finished loading the car, put the pets in last, and set the GPS for our Day One Destination: Flagstaff AZ.
As expected, Clyde complained loudly for about an hour and a half, then settled. Timi (as always) was great in the car, as fine a canine traveler as any. We stopped twice, for about 15 minutes each time, to break up the 6.5 hours drive. I listened to the classic rock station out of Quartzite (All Right Now was a highlight), and inspirational podcasts on Spotify—Joe Dispenza, and Marianne Williamson. Mind over matter, Oneness, love, and forgiveness were the themes. 🙏🏼✨
Traffic was light and the weather perfect all the way to Flagstaff, where we pulled off I-40 for the night. Got to spend a few hours with a dear friend who lives here; she treated me to a delicious Vietnamese dinner, and Timi treated her to kisses when it was time to say goodbye. Feeling blessed…my heart is full.
We are off to a good start. ♥️

I love reading about your journey. Good for you travelling alone (with pets) so far 🙂
Thank you, Suzanne! It is helping to do shorter days this time, six hours vs eight is a big difference. 🙏🏼❤️
