Time away is time to clear out the cobwebs and to put my house in order. Distance from the churn of life. If I haven’t spoken of it here before, I should have. Lots has happened this winter and early spring and also a lot of nothing has happened. Suddenly the nothing is something. Somehow I misplaced the goodness of the nothing. The comfort of same.
Same job, same house, same life but I forgot that’s not bad news. It’s ok to feel settled. My friends. My family. My small town. My cats even. I actually kept plants alive this winter for goodness sake.
My thirties were so restless. I get tired thinking of it. New places, new cultures, I got a little lost.
I don’t feel lost anymore. I can see the benefit of playing the long game. This is new, people, and we’re going to see where it goes.
For now, I am going to have some more seafood and look at this view and warm my winter filled bones in this glorious sun.
