I was writing in my journal yesterday about our upcoming move to Central Oregon. As I was writing, I got to thinking about how we’ve picked a destination and are working towards moving there. We didn’t have a lot of details at the time we made the decision, and we’re still working on them. The idea made me think of the people who packed up their belongings into Conestoga wagons and set out along the Oregon Trail, seeking to create new lives for themselves. They left with so many details to be worked out, knowing that along the way, they will all fall into place.
After writing, I had this image in my mind and I just had to get it onto paper.
