Across the Universe*

(audio version of blog below)

Moving. Moving. Moving…I believe it is my destiny to move, like a gypsy, from home to home, city to city… Though enamoured by the romanticism of a gypsy, you would never likely guess that is who I am. A (somewhat reluctant) resident of the suburbs, someone who likes to dig in, a homebody… Through destiny and fate, I happened to marry someone who is also destined to move frequently.

Here I am, in my new home in California. Studio up. No furniture yet. And, INCREDIBLY blessed. My business of voice-overs allows me to flexibly work ANYWHERE! Working from home isn’t without its challenges – an essay’s worth at the very least – it is living the dream, as far as I’m concerned.

This time my studio has me looking like the Wizard of Oz, behind a curtain, in a comfortable space that the cat also enjoys. Despite what goes on around me, I am able to maintain my business and, for the most part, my sanity…because no matter where the road takes me, home is in my heart. I know that with every fibre of my being.
