Oh it is hard to re-enter the "real" world. Why do we have to? Can I not just stay in that moment-to-moment glorious, watch the sea waves, feel the sunshine, sit with friends glory?

It is gray and cold here. Volumes of e-mails await me along with a huge project for work. My kids demand attention in a detached sort of way. There is dog fur everywhere and the house needs a good cleaning. All I want to do is sit on a boat and listen to the waves lap against the side.

I have tried for two days now to catch up on e-mail and look at what has been happening in the blog world, but it has been to no avail. I have decided to say “hello” for now. I am back and I am not. Returning to Seattle feels more like a foreign country today than either Mexico or France. Am I a stranger in my own home? Where is home? Home is where the heart is. Hmmmm...I think I will sit with that for a while today.

It is good to "see" you again, to hear your voice here, even if it be only ever so briefly. Take your time. Your friends will be here when you are fully 'back."

Welcome back from another grand adventure. I know it must have been wonderful as you said to relax in the care of loving friends and family. Always hard to return to what we create as our "real life." Sometimes we like what we've created and sometimes not:(

Again, welcome back!

Yes Lucy, welcome back!

I know the feeling that you speak of. Trying to find a small corner of our heart where we always feel at home...sometimes it's not easy.

Meanwhile, I hope it helps to know that you were missed:)
