One of the best things that has happened is that there is a yoga studio here that has invited me to teach for them. Right now I am going through my "trial" period, so we can see if it's a good fit for both the studio and me. I think it is - they have a very gentle and nurturing approach to their teaching and their atmosphere, and that's very much in line with where I am now. So, if all goes well, I'll be on the regular schedule starting next month.
I bought a nice vintage writing desk at a local consignment shop and am feeling very much ready to get back into the swing of things. I only paid $89 for it - here's a picture:
This morning, I opened my eyes to see the bright orange glow of sunrise beyond the palm trees outside our window. Sorry - I didn't have the camera handy! But here are a few pictures around and about where we are.

The pool area:
The Juan Ponce de Leon Park - a half mile from the condo. We take our morning walk up to here and back, and often come and sit here in the afternoons:
As you can see, we have landed well and I am very grateful for how it's all turning out.
It feels good to have an address again and to be establishing some of the rituals of daily life. I look forward to teaching yoga and to writing.
Our RV adventure was the experience of a lifetime and I will treasure the memories always. My goal now, as I re-enter "normal" life, is to try to make the world a better place with whatever I do - teaching yoga, writing, talking with kids and other writers about books and creativity, and spending time with family and friends.
