Rocky re-entry with one day delay

I love where I live, so I love coming home. Yesterday, getting home from our Baltimore trip in the middle of the day was perfect. Today, waking up in my own bed and not having to rush to catch the 8:15 boat was also perfect. (I took the 11:30 boat off the island, and it was actually on time!)

Somewhere during my afternoon off island I lost that “perfect” feeling. By the time I got home again at 5:30, I was suffering a major RMD. (Rapid mood deterioration.) Life just seemed so rough, sad, and annoying. For no reason at all. That’s the confusing part. My mind knows there is nothing wrong, nothing to worry about. But my heart…

Sometimes, re-entry just isn’t smooth.

Good thing I get to wake up again tomorrow morning, in my own bed, and have a whole day to spend in my studio. That’s my plan. New day, new mood.

    new day, new mood. that’s my own personal mantra also. i love that picture of you-puppy too, also.


  2. That dog’s face says it all!

    A day in the studio will cure what ails ya!


  3. I have heard of people who live on islands getting “island” or “rock fever” where they just have to get off the island. You have the reverse. You get “off-island” fever instead. How lovely to live somewhere you love so much. Most of us day dream about living someplace else. Sigh………..

      Off-island fever! That’s it! I never thought of it that way before. (“Off-island headache” is a commonly heard and understood term on the mailboat home.)
      I try not to ever take it for granted, that I get to live in a place I love so much. So many people don’t get to do that.

    I love the island, but only 8 mos. out of the year. It is a very special place indeed and we are very luck to be a part of it.


  5. That dog’s expression is the perfect embodiment of the feeling you described. Glad you are home and able to enjoy the island and the studio time!
