Through the miracle of modern science, or more truthfully those little bottles of 5 hour energy drink, I’m sitting in the window once again as the new day begins. Not quite as nice a morning as yesterday as a heavy fog blankets the city today. A cool raw breeze sends trash tumbling down the street. Happy Easter it calls. Not quite the Easter morning I am used to but Easter just the same.
I’m too tired to be awake but yet still too wired to sleep more than a couple hours at a time. It’s almost as if I have hit some kind of reverse wall where I just stay awake instead of dropping off to sleep. I’m beginning to understand those vamp queens more and more.
A few hours ago this had all the makings of an uber melancholy post. I’m a touch homesick because I haven’t been home for months and I don’t think I have ever missed Easter at home. A dark mood was starting to grab hold of my brain. But a middle of the night conversation with a good friend seemed to melt the mood away and put a smile back on my face.
I found out Friday I finally got to the top of the waiting list for a spot in the nearby garage. That was awesome news. Hopefully sometime this week I can get home and spend some time than bring my car back with me. Maybe even my bike. Now that would be totally awesome too.
I new when I moved here that spring was going to be a big test for me. A test of how much I would miss the mountains and the open spaces. The flowers and trees, just walking bare foot in the grass. I’m going to miss a lot of things the question being how much. But with my car, and maybe my bike, I’ll survive. There are so many places too explore on Long Island and up north.
