Somewhere on a distant planet...

ok, maybe I‘m not quite that far, though I am currently on another continent, and California does feel like it‘s on a different planet. Call it early midlife crisis or the thirst for something new, a few weeks ago I quit my job and went to Germany to visit family and friends. I just got back from the most northern part of the country and will stay in Bavaria until mid September or so. I brought some knitting, but have yet to pick up the needles. Back in SF, a pile of FO‘s is still waiting to be photographed and blogged about, but for the next few weeks, I‘ll remain silent. When I get back, who knows what‘ll happen? Anything is possible, and that thought is incredibly thrilling.
With love from the seaside,
Steph

manchmal hat man einfach das gefühl, als wenn man die batterien gar nicht so schnell auffüllen kann wie sie sich leeren.
lass es dir alles und jedem zum trotz gut gehen!

You know, I did the same thing a few years ago...I quit my job in Australia and moved to Austria, and it was the best decision I have ever made.

Best of luck to you.
