Pool Reflections: 3

This entry has nothing to do about swimming. Just now Big Al and I sat poolside for quite some time in the darkening dusk, just reflecting on things. Sometimes you just have to. We watched the bats do their seemingly choreographed bat-ballet of dips and swoops until my neck got cricks from watching them. Now it’s too dark and I think they’ve gone to bed, which I am about ready to do.

We just sat and reflected on life in general. When you make a big move, [as many people I know have never done in their entire lives] you leave more than a house behind. You leave life as you previously have known it behind. You also leave some friends behind. Sad, but very true. Some friends make no differentiation between the distance between you. They call, they email. While other friends can’t quite make the leap, therefore cutting you loose. Please don’t think of this as plea to call or email me with remorse after having read this. That is not my intent. I am merely stating what I am feeling tonight. Granted, I am not in the best of moods. And, I am feeling lonely. I have to admit it. Even the cicadas are not as noisy, but that’s because it’s quite cool outside right now.

I do love living in Jersey. It rains here. Trees grow without having to plant them. People are friendly and very nice. As much as I feel at home here, I am still alone.

I am seriously thinking of closing off my blog site to the public and just writing for myself off line. For those family members that check frequently I can still send you updates. For the most part this blog site is primarily for me and I was hoping to add something to someone else’s day by writing about my thoughts and experiences. My survey has shown me that not that many people are really interested in the site beside family members and a few friends, so after I think about it some more, you may find this blog site closed to the public. If that happens you can always email me and I can send you the new link.

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
