Arriving home for the vernal equinox, I am so very, very relieved, even if I cannot yet relax. The drive across Pennsylvania was filled with foggy mountaintops that obscured everything from sight, and barricaded rest areas. I got lucky with my stop in Stroudsburg for gas, lunch and a bathroom, despite the closing of all restaurants. The drive across NJ was easy with empty roads, but Long Island roads –local and highway- were stupid busy. I want to live somewhere where people are more considerate and less fantastically self-centered. But I am thankful to be home with my other half.
