I live on a rather tiny island connected to the mainland by a 2 mile causeway. Whenever we come home we sigh in contentment as we look over the water at the Boston skyline and we think "Ahhhh. Home safe lovely." There is no other feeling that even comes close to such contentment and joy. I will think of you as I cross the sound home on Friday, and your drive through familiar streets and the wonderful way your home will smell when open the door and the lovely light that will fill every room as you are welcomed home.
