This is a time of anxiety tempered with faith that it will all come together. Damien and I have less than a month until we make the big move back to PEI. We've been away for almost four years while Damien has been at school earning his BFA. He graduates this month. This is an exciting time, but it is also a roller coaster of emotions. We still have a lot of unknowns - where we'll live (no apartment yet in Charlottetown), jobs for both of us (a little financial security is attractive right now), and what the future will hold in general. We are excited and happy to be moving "home", closer to our families and many dear friends and the island that we love, but the opportunities are a little thinner on the ground in that smallest of provinces...but, if we're looking in the right places, there is plenty of potential for our lives to grow.

This photo is one I took last week when my mother and I went to look at a little house for sale in Charlottetown. For some reason, this image radiates hope and optimism for me right now...


  1. Moving can be so overwhelming for so many reasons! It's exciting to get a fresh start, even with unknowns. I trust that means there are surprising opportunities for you and everything will work out in the end. Best of luck!

  2. Good luck with the move Rilla...and the job. A little security is nice once in a while. Thinking of you. Brenda
