Ignore the awkward angle and the Cyrano de Bergerac-esque snout, and try to tap in to how this image feels, because it’s a reflection of my very SOUL.
Today.felt.good. Very good.
Everything felt normal.
Perfect. . .
and I basked in all the perfect normalness until I was saturated through and through.
I felt like me. And I liked it.
Driving familiar roads, seeing familiar faces, hearing the familiar roar of the ocean. . . yes, it was a very good day.
The truth is, I miss my old life. I miss my friends. I miss my house. AND I MISS THE OCEAN. Boy do I miss the ocean. But again, and again, and again, home is where we are, together. The only “wrongness” of this day, was the absence of the people who belong here right along with me. I love them more than familiarity, friendship and every drop in the ocean combined, times 10. I don’t want to be anywhere they’re not. So there.
I love you Raleigh, Cardon, Lincoln and Richie. Thank you for being way awesomer than every other thing on the planet. See you soon! Nat Nat/Mom
