Home is good

Home again, home again, jiggety jig. The air here is different. My skin felt chapped and dry while I was away, and now that I’m home it feels relieved. I walked to the beach this morning and even though it was chilly, I felt warmer than I have in a week. And the temperatures are less extreme from inside to outside here at home. I reunited with my usual breakfast in my usual bowl (organic free range eggs soft boiled over 7-grain toast) and didn’t have to pay $12 for the privilege.

Of course, I’m already on my third load of laundry and I have about a million household tasks that need immediate attention, like, say, groceries, but the feel of the place settles in around me and makes me happy.

Naturally, I won’t be home most of the day. It’s my first day at the new job, a long-ish day for a part-timer, and my brain will be full to bursting by the end. At which time, I will go meet my lovely writing buddies. But again, a return to people who nourish me, who stretch me and comfort me.

Home is good.
