There are two places in this world
that feel like home to me.
Next to her
and next to the sea.

One of them is 162 miles away from me.

The other I can see from my bedroom window.


On the beach
in winter
with pebbles under my feet.

Not the home I long for
but the home I need.


  1. I like.

    Also, I relate so hard to your shoes-in-the-sand photo up there. I swear, every time I'm at a beach, I feel compelled to take a shot of my toes in the sand. It's just one of those things!

  2. So, when I saw this post a few days ago, my first thought was, why does he want to live on Cape Cod if he already has this...today, when I read it again I wonder more about this lady friend...(Oh yes, my eye brows are raised meaningfully, oh, yes, indeed.)
