I did field work for a long time, which was a lonely gig, but I got used to the solitude. Now I am not alone, but feel like I have sent my children off, out of the nest, except that they are still all in the nest and I have left. It is a strange place to be.
I guess I am outside of my comfort zone. I'm taking some time to just be with it and settle in. It is not a bad place, just a place I haven't been to in a while.
