Emptiness

I’m not sure fairytales can even begin to describe how wonderful the last couple of weeks have been… the mellow breath of pre-autumn had not only brought delicious days our way, but also some very dear people, with mom and dad and Alan home for a few days... seeking shade in mid afternoon, inhaling in contentment on the last hurrah of summer glow…
I am back again into my little virtual book of thoughts, back to my routine... I always feel this when people I love have just left. There is a kind of parting of the air, whatever it is, as if I were going through something like the parting of the ocean, some extraordinary aloneness that is frightening for a little while, or at least feels very empty...
