on the cusp

Back in NYC in the 80s, I had a professor of Jungian psychology who used to refer to pivotal moments as “chinging” moments, in reference to the I Ching. There are often turning points when the serendipities of life seem extra significant, as if the universe itself is spelling out some deeper messages. It may seem odd that one can find clarity through the random tosses of a few coins. Yet that ancient art of interpretation always seems to shed new light on things.

…and so it happens that we are on the verge of another crystalization, a time full of milestones for the whole family. In the course of the next month we will be celebrating many things. A college graduation in New Jersey. A wedding in Tennessee. A family reunion in Colorado, with a literary conference slipped in on the side. Transitions at work, transitions in our communities. Chinging moments everywhere.  

And in Lima, we just celebrated 90 years of the American Women’s Literary Club with some special events to highlight the club’s history of English-speaking women who have made Lima their home, whether temporarily or permanently. Though  we do share some common threads and overlapping stories, every member has a unique story that led them to join the club. Like the princess in Arabian nights, we could tell a new story every night for the next decade and still have stories to tell about the lives in Lima that have bridged different cultures.

But those are tales for another time.

We have suitcases to pack, places to go, people to see, and dreams to chase…

hasta pronto!
