Finally got home for a few days. I'm so used to running around in the city, from one appointment to the next and the next that I could not relax. Kept feeling antsy, like I should be doing something. But when I finally made it to the beach... reading in the afternoon sun... breathing in the sea salt air... my parents chilling in the shade... I let out a long sigh of relief. I didn't even know I was holding my breath.
