Packing the car to go on a two week hiatus to a beach house owned by a relative. the beach is crowded, all the people are somehow related through history, blood or famine to my husbands history blood and famine. and while this can make me feel sort of outoftheloop, it is a welcome chance for unconnectedness and all of this is ON A BEACH. so whats the complaint, really.
All the change lately has made me feel more connected to myself. Maybe its the kids getting older and more selfsufficient (at least one of them), maybe its the changing scene on husbands worklife, or my aging process, or my ability to cook being called into irrelevance by summer cold food. but my strands are interwoven. and it feels very good, strong in the way that I've always strived for. Strong.
