Beside the sky that sits like a painting, rippled in faded colors of a sun that slipped away, water moves silently, glistening like a million diamonds scattered on smooth cloth, I breathe in the familiarity that is still foreign in its own unique way. I have returned to this world and in reach of the endless water, yet it is different now, it is a world I am at heart a part of yet still feel somewhat detached and it was home and now it is a place to visit, my paradise waits a thousand miles and days away yet I am calm, I feel the empty void that moves like a few drops of water in a glass too large, space where there should be a fullness, but there is harmony within for it must be, it has to be. 

I close my eyes and breathe in the cool air surrounding me, the scent not comforting like my space that lies behind, no essence is here of me and I move across this place like a bottle on the waves, meandering with the wind, searching for the place to land. I am here again and the mission is moving forward and familiar faces greet me, some leave me sad for missing the essence of a loving soul, for being so far now but I move forward and embrace each day and appreciate the places that can feed this mind, the water with the thousand diamonds and the sun that slips away as I reach out as if to entice it to remain for just a bit longer…but with each passing, another day comes with new moments to live, and one step closer to the journey home.

Enjoying my vacation yet missing my space where I am complete. I suppose I can add up all of the beautiful moments to tide me through, enjoy each laugh, hug and face but I realize I no longer see this place as home anymore, missing the tropical scents and my peaceful blue room retreat for “getting my Zen on” and missing you my friends. Be back next week and looking forward to the insights I gain in hindsight. Peace and love, K

  1. thanks so much Hayley, still playing catch up now that I’m home…hoping to get some new material out today…way over due and I miss my time here. Thanks and I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂


  2. Thanks Michael,
    Sometimes I enjoy the change up of things but am at heart, a creature of habit. When out of my element, it takes me time to readjust…by the time I’m adjusted, it’s time to leave again. Having a good time seeing friends and family, sleeping fairly well, etc…..back to home end of week…a long drive indeed. Be back soon too, yay….I miss this, but told myself I would relax and let go for a bit😊
    Peace and love,

  3. Thanks Sheldon,
    Taking it one day at a time
    As is the way that works best
    Enjoying the precious moments
    Breathing in the cool lake air
    Watching the sun set if only to know
    It will rise again tomorrow
    And be just as calming.
    Peace and love
    Be back soon,

  5. Lovely, Kim. Vacations can be strange like that– like we’ve been taught its good to get away from life somehow, and then we realize we miss what is most ours…

  6. When I visit Western New York, I try to make time for a side trip to Lake Ontario, to look for beach glass, look out on the water and remember the comfort that place gave me when I was sorting out my life.
