I’m sitting in the Snug Cafe on Bowen Island waiting for my ferry and having one of those “I don’t want to leave” moments. I’ve had a pretty miserable time these last few days, crying, feeling crazy and angry. The sun is shining today. Crazy windstorms and lots of rain the past few days, with some occasional blasts of sunshine and a rainbow. My mood has mirrored the weather. What I like about small towns is the little cafes, watching the locals interact, it all feels so friendly, they smile at me, they laugh with each other, kids running around and the air feels fresh. It’s slower, that’s what I really like about it, messy hair, rumpled shirts, Billy Joel on the radio, and the smell of breakfast. It’s almost time to go, head back to the noise, the less fresh air, but still pretty fresh. Someday, I won’t have to leave. Someday, a place like this will be home.
