Moving Blues & Nostalgia

One of the worst things about leaving a place you really like is that you start noticing the things you really like! I spotted a blue heron this morning at the edge of the lake, a really big fellow. These photos aren't mine, (too busy packing) but they could be.



Right outside my living room, on the side of the house, is a Hong Kong Orchid tree. I had never heard of this tree before moving here, and I was instantly in love.



Of course, I have to remember the bad omens I'm getting with palms falling and grapefruit trees dying on me, and I'm sure that I will find new things to love at the new house. But there's that sickening emptiness in the pit of my stomach.

Maybe I should make a sandwich.
