I.         the moving of something from its place or position.

    II.         the removal of someone or something by someone or something else that takes their  place

  III.         the unconscious transfer of an intense emotion from its original object to another one.

I think I will always remember this summer as one of feeling displaced. Not from my home or space but rather from the daily rhythm I had structured for the every day. Somehow my set, comfortable life has shifted and I find myself in a very different place than this time last year. Not yet at the final destination, I feel very in-between. Exciting things have happened that will come to fruition in the Fall.

It has been difficult to settle into a routine and I am not one who does well without structure. I find it hard to fully connect to the professor part of me and to the Accidental Icon part of me, though both require my attention this summer. Neither feels solid or sturdy right now. I feel the ground shifting under my feet and it makes me unsteady. However, I also know that I need to just hold the unsettledness, it will pass.

Age tells me that at the end of this uncertain time some dreams will be realized and others displaced. My life will right itself.  I have been here before. At the end of the day I know that my life is looking up.
