It’s time to disconnect from my teacher persona for a time. I’m setting Mrs. Arends, the uber-planner and ultra-type-A educator, aside for a time so that I can reconnect with Lisa, the adventurous, may-be-afraid-but-will-do-it-anyway, side of myself.
And the summer of disconnection and reconnection starts tomorrow morning, when I fly to meet a childhood friend (that I haven’t seen since childhood) in her home state. I’m going to start my adventure by testing out roller derby, a passion of my friend’s and a curiosity of mine. After a (hopefully good!) night’s sleep, we will then be taking a week-long road trip to explore Southeastern Canada and the Northeastern U.S.
The planning is done. The packing is almost complete. And then it will be time to get my motor runnin’, head out on the highway and find some adventure.
Here’s to old friends, new journeys and the life-affirming thrill of adventure!
