Since I’ve been in Maine the past few days – which is why I’ve been absent – I’ve been getting ready for The Big Move down to Tennessee in a few weeks. As a part of this big move, I’m also doing a mental change. It’s a big change to go from student to teacher, from dependent daughter to independent adult, and not just in terms of what I do in a day. How I see myself and what I think is changing, too.
This realization led to some introspection lately. What are the different parts that make up Kate?
Student – but that’s becoming teacher
Author – of hopefully more pieces than just Aureole
Friend – but so many of my wonderful friends are headed off to new adventures
Mainer – but now I’m moving to Tennessee
Sister and daughter, which isn’t changing, but I’ll be fulfilling my role from far away
Things they are a-changing!
Oh, and speaking of Aureole, for this week only it’s now $0.99. A year ago this week I published it, so in celebration the price of electronic copies has lowered for this week only. Buy it for your Kindle or Nook! Don’t have either? You can download apps for one or the other for your computer, phone, or iPhone, or buy the hard copy for about $11.
