When I left Block Island in October to spend a month in Edinburgh, I had to take all the boxes in off the deck in case there would be a storm [there were a couple]. I thought everything would just die and no matter I would deal with that later, and next year. When I returned on Saturday morning, I had a tomato harvest.
On Saturday I walked with Socha along the trails at Peckham Farm Road.this morning I cycled to Andy’s Way. The island is beautiful and the birds will eat well this winter – other fruit besides tomatoes have flourished.
I also had lunch and talk with Gloria and Harold – have you noticed that the world is sorted? And dinner with the girls after which we went to Ballard’s Dock to catch squid – very successfully – a friend took a bucket full home to turn into calamari.
But maybe I am still in transition. I certainly have more than one place I want to be. Where do I call home? Thankfully we have Face-time and Skype and good old Phone. And a computer full of photos for the times when I am not standing on a dark dock watching inky squid. Both Edinburgh and Block island are good places to be out and about.
