Hilton Head, South Carolina

Consider the strange feelings gone, thank goodness. Of course, my mind still feels a little fuzzy (am I still tipsy from those two drinks 40 hours ago? haha) and my heart is still a bit achy, but it’s all good. I’m alive and willing to keep on living.

Always a good sign.

Another smoothie by my side, I’m recovering from an arduous day of shopping and laying on the beach. I have more of a tan (or is it just a burn line?) than I’ve had in my life, and it’s only been two days. I sort of don’t want to leave – the atmosphere here is so relaxed and warm. I definitely feel “on vacation” here. Sarah works a lot, and I sort of tinker about on my own, which is fine with me, since I’m comfortable by myself. I also don’t feel (too) weird or awkward being myself with her, which is a relief. Sarah has always been one of those people who can get along with anybody, and I honestly believe she barely ever has a truly negative thought about anyone; she’s so loving and accepting.

Started reading “Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil” today, as preparation for my trip to Savannah. I was concerned about how I was going to experience Savannah in a way that would be inspiring and transporting, but then I remembered couchsurfing, and sent out a couple emails. Hopefully I’ll get a response, and someone to help me see the city. Perhaps even a couch to crash on.

I think I burned the top of my head. I always burn the top of my head.
