Movin' on up (literally)

Further North, in an even more remote area than Labrador. Adam is already there and starts his work this coming Monday while Jules and I will be heading up in early September. Where you might ask? Dawson City, YUKON! We're thrilled to be moving to a new place, into a fresh adventure and amidst a community that seems so *right* for all of us. But before we move, I feel a little reticent to write about the *rightness* until I've experienced the expectation for myself. For now, I'm caught amidst the organizing, packing and 'letting go' of the many things we've accumulated in the couple of years we've been here in St. John's. For me, releasing from the many layers of attachment will forever be a work in progress. When I'm in Savasana I think 'Let go' and allow my mind to list releases with a smile.

Looking forward to more regular blogging in September, if not before.

Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.

Thanks for reading. 


  1. Hi Joanne, that is exciting news for you, Julia, and Adam. Hume is jealous of the fishing. :) Hope the transition goes smoothly and that you love your new community!

    1. So glad you wrote Daphne. And of course, the only way to cure the fishing envy is to come see for yourselves! The door is open (and my spice drawer is available to Oscar and Julia's fertile imaginations too). Thank you for the Calef Brown book- we've read it so much that we recite it everywhere!

  2. My dear Jo:
    miss you so much and look forward to see you. For your family and the new adventure i wish all the best of the world. I hope the transition will be everything that you are expecting.
    All my love for you all.

    1. DORA!
      You are a rare gem! WE miss you plenty too! Adam and I would love to return to Portugal with Julia so that she can experience the beauty, joy and friendships we've been so fortunate to nourish over the years.
