Re: Downside of living aboard

Our little boat is docked in the Hudson River and most days now we see south bound sailboats pulling up to the outer docks for the night. They are going and we are staying. A lot of times we end up talking on the docks and strange words come out of my mouth about when I am leaving and the boat I'm going to find to take me there.

Lately when I watch them leave it feels like a small panic and as if I'm split down the middle and the only way to put humpty dumpty back together is to sail out and head south. I don't know if I should wish this feeling would go away or if I should be thankful for it.
