Laura and Chris stayed at my Airbnb for six days after Christmas. Chris was an attorney in Alaska until he got tired of it. He bought a boat in Portugal, and met Laura who’s from Belgium. They got married. A true love and a boat in one trip to Portugal. Interesting things happen when you jump off the merry-go-round.
They’ve been traveling the seven seas—or some of them anyway. They left the boat moored in Panama for the winter and flew to Centralia to look at a piece of land they might buy and live on. A far cry from sailing the world you might say, but this is a pretty sweet place to live.
It’s also a beautiful place to visit. You can find me here if you are coming to this great little corner of the country.

I hope 2018 is full of more connections and stories just like these. I’m so glad someone wrote about the light. It’s my favorite part. There is nothing like the natural light at the bookends of a day but the interior lighting is beautiful. Hygge ! And cheers to getting off the merry-go-round !

We did not ask for this room or this music; we were invited in.
Therefore, because the dark surrounds us, let us turn our faces toward the light.
Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty…
We did not ask for this room or this music.
But because we are here, let us dance.
Thank you! I’ve met such interesting people. Love the poem.
