Movin'on Up

by Mandie
(Chapel Hill, NC)

I am ready to be cradled by the mountains, to feel part of a community, to step out and take risks,participate and enjoy life.

It's time to move on. Move on to what I always wanted, really. To live in a beautiful, outdoorsy place, a God place, that has summers that can be enjoyed and winters with snow. To be part of my grown daughter's life. To have my unique individuality valued and enjoyed, to have down to earth friends who put lifestyle,relationships, the environment and their community over money. To pursue my creative side. To continue to learn and grow and develop spiritually with others who do the same.
To have relationships with people who walk the walk as well as talk the talk. To have fun: concerts, hiking, canoeing, camping,bluegrass, people watching, exploring, including my dog in a place where he is welcomed. To be nurtured by mother nature, woods, forest, wilderness, mountains, lakes, streams and rivers. The unadulterated night sky.

Being in this new place will re-energize my battery. It's exciting to anticipate waking up to the natural beauty, lively energy and friendliness of Asheville. It's a place where I plan to be who I want to be and create the life I want to live.
