Returned from Ocean Shores. It was not boring, to say the least. Ocean Shores will not go down in my memory as a place with great lattes (because I had only one halfway decent latte while I was there) or a place with friendly people (because most weren't too hospitable) or even a place with beautiful weather (rain falling sideways...).
I will remember the ocean, and I will remember dancing to someone karaoking Bust A Move at Cadillac Jack's. I'll remember being in bed by 7:30pm and watching Animal Planet all night. I'll remember dancing my little heart out, and all my sadness and all my restlessness.
I can't say that my muse has returned to me. But perhaps s/he is closer to returning.
