In spite of the pain that such attachments may cause, I am grateful to have those feelings. I have known hard people who feel very little. I am not a hard person, although there are those who have thought they knew me as such. I would much rather be the one who hasn't walled off his heart. My father once told me that feeling too much was unhealthy. He might have been right.
I am getting ready to go out on the new boat for a few days. This is her shake down cruise. We will be going to our old island spot and hopefully have a fire on the beach. It's time for me to reconnect my spirit with that island where we have had so many good times.
Thank you for all your caring comments. You are a special group of people. I may not get by your blogs every day, but I do wonder how you are doing. I also miss those who have moved on to other endeavors. You see I formed attachments to the bloggers too. Wishing those of you still here and those who aren't all the best.
