Home is Where the HeART is

I am fortunate to have a wonderful like and am grateful for everything and everyone in it. I have everything I need and almost everything I ever asked for except I forgot to sepcify: LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

Small town living is killing me and after reading an article in The Wall Street Journal about  the physical manifestations of stress: shoulder pain, stiff neck, migraines, nausea…and recognizing that I indeed have them all, I booked a flight home.  I may no longer belong there either anymore but at least I can be among my own people. Crazy, hyper, pushy, in-you-face, let’s eat great food and then go to the art museum and get our nails done on the way back while we tawk about family and other mishigosh and tsouris and kvetch and nosh some more over cawfee and liberally pepper our speech with the “f” word and not give a s–t about the local football team. I feel better already.

Yes I’m going alone. My sister is picking me up at the airport. I’m going to see my brother and hopefully my niece. I have plans already to see old friends from Jersey (Joizee) and possibly a new one from Philadelphia–the City (as in NY, a.k.a. Manhattan, and NEVER F–kin’ called “the big apple unless you’re a tourist) is a great place to meet and schmooze and just be.  Of course I’ll be supply shopping and shlepping the camera.

In the meantime, I’m going to finish my taxes and clean up my studio so I can come back to this other home, batteries recharged and dig in. Actually I’ll be heading  to Cleveland to teach for three days.
