The Florida version. Funny that the A Dream Away poem posted, as it is kinda how I feel right now. I am conflicted. I have spent the year up in Georgia crying about Florida- i LOVE Florida insanely. It is so beautiful. But it is a shock to come here after being in the peaceful mountains so long. There are so many people and it is so built up here. I have felt kind of displaced since I got here, and only felt comfortable out at my fav beach. I suppose when I lived here, I didn't notice that it was built up so much that I couldn't see the true nature of it. It is like a million neon signs pointing to one tiny treasure, so much so that it blocks your view of the treasure. It makes me sad. Natural Florida is so beautiful and unique. Man is so concerned about invasive species, they need to remember that THEY are the worst invasive species there is. I still love it here. I am just sticking my head out of my shell slowly and peeping around. But I haven't connected like I used to be connected. I find solace in remembering my gypsy blood, that helps me to center myself more to remember that wherever I am is home. I am finally catching up on sleep which helps too. And the allergy pills are helping finally- I was totally bombarded when I got here. I suppose the real deciding factor is that I miss my cats! Wherever THEY are is TRULY home.
