Homesickness is beginning to set in now. I miss my connection with the outdoors. I miss the feeling that working in the outdoors gives me. I miss acres of countryside around me. I miss that sense of space. I miss seeing the puppies grow.
But there is more that I miss besides the obvious.
I miss the attitudes of people who live in a s smaller place. I miss the direction that my thoughts turn to when I am at home, the plans that I have, to make things work.
Where I am staying now is definitely a different world, one that I don't entirely belong to and don't entirely not belong to, it is a strange feeling. I enjoy my work and, obviously, I need to earn money, but I just wish my work was not city based.
It is a blip, yesterday was a piss poor day and I felt very low coming home last night, watching the miserable faces and needing that hit that only home can give.
So, thank you to my fellow bloggers, because reading your blogs/comments seems to connect me back to my home in a way that I would not have believed possible a year ago. When the people around me don't seem to understand me, I know there is a whole community of people out there that does,
