Looking Ahead

Empty Tracks

My iTunes: Ants Marching by Dave Matthews Band

Hey ya'll.....

Sorry that it has been so long.....

I have missed this so much. Unfortunately I will be gone a bit longer. As I am waiting for our container to arrive from London with our belongings, I am preparing our new home for the day when when move in (which is right around the corner). I am very excited but also very tired. Living out of boxes has become WAY too common for our family and I am looing forward to unpacking for awhile. I am a such a nester. Funny how those behaviors just click in without warning! I will be scarce around here for a little bit more time....whether it is visiting or posting. The whole cross continental move has got me a bit overwhelmed and at a loss for time when it gets to my blog.

I will be posting in about a week so make sure to check back!

Take care and have a GREAT weekend!

Christy said...

Have fun unpacking... I know how being a nomad can be...

Mike said...

Wow what a time you are having! Of course I love this shot.

I wish you the best as you get your container and unpack.

Tracy said...

Lovely photo.

It is so much fun setting up a new home...once the boxes are gone!

take you time, dear anna.....
there are more important things than blogging! :)

i'm a nester, too.... so i understand and hope you get settled soon so you can start planting roots.

Mark said...

Leading us into the unknown.

I wonder, though, what part of the train makes those bright streaks?

CG said...

Hey Anna!

Sorry it's been so long . . . I'm in college now!

I moved down here to Depaul (in Chicago) last Saturday and I have been loving every second of it!

I'll be updating soon, so you can see all of my adventures.

When I was young, I could rent U-Haul's 26ft truck, and load that puppy by myself in one day. Lovely Wife would clean as I emptied rooms and soon after the truck was loaded we would hit the road.

That was 15 years and 4 back surgeries in the past.

Now I have seizures whenever I see a moving van.

When either Lovely Wife or I see a U-Haul van, we say to one another, "Look Honey! Someone's having an adventure in moving!" Then I have another seizure at the thought of it.

(U-Haul's vans used to have "An Adventure In Moving" written large on the sided of their trucks.

Wonderful shot of the tracks, though I'm with Mark, wondering what causes the light/dark streaks.

Ash said...

Love that shot...interesting perspective.

Good luck for the unpacking process!

Moi said...

a nester myself, I can empathize...i hate it when i have to live out of my suitcase or boxes and for some reason it happens to moi every 4-5 years ...

u take care and let the blogging take a backseat for a while.....:)

A local move can be tiring and frustrating so moving from England back here must really be exhausing, Anna. I hope you're able to relax at least a little in the upcoming week.

Beverly said...

It is good to hear from you and get caught up. I do not envy you, but I know you'll be glad when you're done.

Sarch said...

I love this photo Anna!

Hang in there and keep on keepin' on. It will eventually come to some form of completion.

Looking forward to your return...we'll be here.

kenju said...

photowannabe said...

Rest and regroup Anna. This post is perfect for your feelings. I do hope your container comes soon and you can begin Nesting...

eurorebs said...

Take your time!! Seriously, we'll still be here...I'm praying for you guys! I'm excited that you'll get to "nest" soon. :) Love you.

Taylor DiVincenzo said...

That's so cool that you're back in America! Even though we both know London is the most intriguing city on this earth!

Don't get too stressed! Life only goes forward from here!

Chad Oneil said...

Anna,
Take your time. When you're back, I'll be back here to see your work and visit.

I'm amazed that you can even blog at all given everything you're going through now.

Railroad tracks keep calling me back. They are such powerful platforms for the visual message. You have, of course, captured these in such a unique way. It's a powerful moment that makes me think about perspective and potential.

Please know we're thinking of you as you settle into your new life in a new place far from your former home. What an adventure.

i love pictures of train tracks.

that dave matthews band song is great!
