Somehow, blogging just hasn't been on my radar screen recently. I've done so much since the last time I blogged. But there's little photo evidence and not a lot to talk about. I got really sick (but not with the flu, thank goodness), went to Boston overnight after I got better, and visited the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science. That was really fun!
This is my last weekend here in Maine, and I don't even have words to express my mix of emotions. Change is always difficult for me, and I suspect it's difficult for most people. I'm preparing to go back to Minnesota, and I'm excited to be back with Matt. But I'm sad to miss the lull of the ocean and a job that takes me outside all the time. I'm not sure yet what I'll be doing when I get back, so that's another difficulty. Maybe I'll finally have time to pursue lots of personal goals, although the catch-22 is always finding the balance of time and money. I'm trying really hard to be patient.
I do want to share something lovely I read last night/this morning: Love that Dog by Sharon Creech. It's a book of poems written from the point of view of a young man learning about poems, and it is lovely in the subtle allusions to other poems I love. It's a quick read and a must-read for anyone who appreciates poetry.
