A shift from the corporate world
To trailing spouse
Opened her eyes to new ways of being
I no longer aspire to have that big career.
Her life at a crossroads
The creation of new community in each location
I think ‘coming home’ was the toughest transition of all.
And reflect on the edges of time
Those that have been there
You didn’t see them
New visitors arrive & breathe your space
Who are they?
Where do they come from?
They see it through new eyes
What will they think about us when they leave?
How will they remember us & our environment?
Will they ever return?
