Journaling My Transition….

Another day Written Tues. July 24th Alone this morning. Kate left early. It feels peaceful. I’ve moved to my “flower view bed”, enjoying the beauty and sounds of the morning. Not much planned.

Beginning Of My Story – Journaling My Transition

Written Jun 22, 2012 3:29pm by Tom Knell On Saturday, January 21 of this year, I returned from probably the best vacation in my life. I had spent 10 days with Kate in Costa Rica. I mentioned to Kate on the way home that I wanted to deepen my spiritual life, that I felt I… Continue Reading →
