Happy Freya’s Day!
I know we are a long way from snow and ice season here in Michigan. I also know the movie Northman has been recently released and No, I haven’t seen it. But this really isn’t about either of these things but more of a personal reflection. I have done a lot of literal walking the last couple of weeks on the trails close to my current place of residence recently and this has given me a lot of time to think.
The more time I spend here in my home state, the more I realize this is my true home and always will be. I just don’t feel as close to myself down in Houston as I do here. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate Texas, it’s just I have never been a cowboy type. I am more of Woods, Hills, and Snow type cut right from the medieval world. I want my cabin in the woods, not an apartment in a big city.
That’s why the more time I spend at home, the more I my plan to spend one more year in Texas, finish my training, mentorship, get one more year of experience, and then transfer home. Here to my home state – Northern Michigan. I am a Northman.
This next year feels more like an upcoming raid. True Northman Viking Style.
