In the last week I have traveled to Ft. Leavenworth
to work for a few days, came back to Oklahoma but stopped in Oklahoma City to be with my family at the American Choral Directors Association
national convention and now as I write this I am in the hotel, packed, waiting for my ride to the airport to catch a flight to <ahref="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/orlando,_florida">Orlando</a>.
It has really been a week of unsettled existence, outside of any schedule that one might consider normal or familiar. Being in the Kansas City area such a short time did not allow me to get comfortable in either my place or time. The same with the few days I have been in OKC. If I am lucky, staying the week in Orlando may allow me to catch up to myself. AND we won't even mention the time change thrown in today.
So, in essence I am suffering from an extended liminal phase stuck as I am in a revolving existence, moving from one unstable calendar to the next.
WHOA! Just as I was typing this our hotel either suffered an earthquake, an incredible structural fault or a disturbance related to nearby Tinker AFB
. The walls shook and the building physically moved beneath me. There doesn't seem to be a noticeable alarm being raised but that was odd!
