Vague Updates and a New Road Trip

This blog has been pretty quiet recently. I won’t go into details about why—there have been a lot of emotional ups and downs, vague decision-making about my future, some disappointments here and there. But God is at work, and He is gradually feeding me the information I need as I need it. I do wish I had more to go on, but I’m working with what I have.

Right now, actually, I am in New England. I left last week and drove through Pennsylvania and New York, had another good AirBNB experience, and stayed with friends in Boston. I went to New York City, Salem (for the first time), and Rockport MA (also for the first time). I’m planning to go hiking in Maine and Vermont, and I don’t even have plans yet for my return. I have to be back in Ohio for a meeting in the last week of the month, but aside from that, I’m keeping things pretty open-ended.

Unlike my trip out West this summer, I am deliberately trying to be better at trusting God and not giving in to anxiety, the better to enjoy the journey. After months of depression and insecurity and uncertainty, I have friends praying that this trip will be enjoyable and spiritually refreshing, and so far God has responded with great generosity.

Someday I will post more pictures of my trip from out West, but until then, enjoy a few shots from the last week:
