It is September – and children everywhere have returned to school. I have returned to Block Island after an eventful summer. Last week’s event here was that Finlay (used to be just Finn) jumped out of the truck to chase a cat and got hit by a car. Broken leg, recovering, but everyone was of course pretty upset.
The rest of the family are well, and it is very good to be back, and getting the hellos and welcomes which are part of this island and its tight knit community. I really have become a traveler though I do not feel I am a tourist – just someone who has been fortunate to have reason to go to different places, and is able to do so. Block Island is recovering from the traffic and stresses of the summer season. The weather, at least this weekend, has been sunny and clear, but not desperately hot. Just right for me! This afternoon I walked with my friend J all along the beach. Afterwards I went down to the Surf and went swimming – the tide was far out by then so it was walk and then swim. I think I will sleep tonight.
