Slight Melancholy

After two long weekends full of friends and family, our house is empty this week. While it’s nice to slip back into routines, it’s also just a touch lonely. 

My parents flew home on my birthday, and both B and I had to work. I spent most of the late morning just sitting and wishing the weekend hadn’t ended so soon. There is always a slight melancholy at the end of a visit. This one was no different. 

It’s been a perfectly good week. But the house seems sad without my Dad’s laugh and my Mom’s knitting. I’m glad we have another trip planned, because this would be even harder if we didn’t. 

Until the next visit, I’ll remember that the slight melancholy is just a reminder of the good times we had. And I’ll play those on repeat until I see them again. 


About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
