As I get ready to sit down and complete my monthly readings for myself and my patrons, I felt the call to sit down and write. I’m not sure what’s going to flow from my fingertips this morning, but since I’m not currently working on my book, I guess I just needed to type.
We aren’t sure how we like it here in Florida yet. We’ve lived here since the middle of June and so far, we haven’t experienced much. We went to the beach but that’s about the only place people are actually practicing social distancing here. There is so much to explore here close to Tampa, but with the pandemic still being what it is, I’m afraid to go out and do things. I should be, I mean, that’s just the right thing to do anyway. I don’t want to get other people sick if I’m carrying COVID. I don’t want anyone in my family to get sick, especially my daughter. Honestly, we’re stuck here in Florida for a year because of our lease and then I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m getting tired of moving, but nowhere feels particularly like home. I don’t know what I’m searching for yet, but I’ll find it one day, I suppose.
Maybe I’ll entertain the idea of getting a travel trailer and just traveling. A nomadic lifestyle has its perks, and it certainly has its draw for me. There is a lot of logistical planning that would have to go into it, I suppose, but it is something that I’ve been thinking more and more about. Something about living like that — small, minimalist, and free to move around — is very appealing to me. I don’t know how my boyfriend would like it, since he would be the one driving, but I guess we just need to talk about it.
I hope everyone is doing well today. I hope you’re all staying safe.
I’ll talk to you soon,
