Today has been exciting. I signed paperwork so that I’m now an official tour guide to one of my favorite spots, Hollywood Cemetery. It’s such a beautiful place and I have loved it as long as I can remember. This was a fairly extensive journey that began in January through a guide school course which focused on the history of the location. I love a good story but until this course I always found history to be a bit dry and full of numbers and facts that don’t have any meaning in my life. This all changed with this course. I’ve been reading extensively and have a whole new appreciation. In many ways, this has been a decade longing which finally came to fruition. Even in my old life I had wanted to work as a guide but the stars just didn’t align until this year. My therapist sees life as a series of seasons which as a gardener I adore. Even in life, there is a time to sit and “winter”; there is a time to grow and “spring”; there is a time to let go parts of yourself and “fall”; and, there is a time to simply appreciate the abundance of hard work and “summer”. For a little over five years now I have been watching my seasons changing. I finally feel like I’ve reached a bit of summer.
