The Long Way Home

It takes some convincing for Jeff to travel. He is more cautious than I am about money, and taking time away from his artwork for a gift of escapism. But once he’s  there, he’s fully there, the man with three cameras swinging from his neck, wearing out the treads in his shoes from walking for hours to dig through residents’ trash. That’s what we love most: stealing away into quiet side streets, never knowing what we’ll find. It’s difficult though to find a quiet moment in Key West during high tourist season, but somehow we managed at South Beach, one of the most crowded places at sunset. It helps to arrive a few minutes late to your destination.

It’s great you were able to find some peace in the midst of tourist season. I love the colours in the photos of you on the pier and the last one, of the sea, sky and clouds – very dreamy. I think they all really show the quiet you were able to find there and even though it’s not much of a winter here, they also make me want to start driving south!

I get tense about money worries as Jeff does befor I travel. I totally get that. The release of finding that perfect vacation moment is always worth it. I love the image of you on the pier by the way.

I tell him that sometimes we gotta throw caution to the wind and trust that everything will work out – a week of relaxation to preserve the sanity (PS thanks for the photo compliment!).

It was like a smile from the sky – beautiful summer-like moon in winter.
