“Everybody wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.” It is a fact and it is also what was going through my mind when I woke up this morning. Today has been such an odd day. Our flat is nearly empty and tonight will be something more like camping than anything else and still I can’t seem to really grasp that any of this is real. Surreal has been my theme word for much of this summer and it continues to be even now… which, I suppose, should not be surprising.
So tomorrow we leave and head north and west to Dublin and a few days after that further west to the States… and so it goes. I have so many thoughts whirling around in my head- none of them seem to stay put long enough to write so I will leave it with the song that was playing in my head this morning and acknowledge that yes… “everybody wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.” It’s a fact and a known quantity- which is very comforting to me at the moment.
