delicious ambiguity

5.24.23 ~ red-winged blackbird ~ Mystic, Connecticut

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking a moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.

Our last day in Connecticut. Tomorrow we depart for North Carolina! The next time I post I will have changed the name of my blog from By the Sea to Inland Wanderings, unless of course, a different inspiration hits me between now and then.

  1. Dear Barbara, I am excited to hear how the story unfolds for you and Tim. Enjoy the journey to discovering your new “nest”. You can count on a visit from me when you feel settled!

    1. Thank you, my dear friend! I am looking forward to your visit and will be thinking of you often when exploring the lay of the land in my new adopted home, deciding where to take you when you come…

  2. I’m happy for you, sad for me. Safe journeys.
    I’m looking forward to a different perspective of the wilderness from NC.

    1. Thank you, Julie. It’s so bittersweet, a happy destination but I will miss our blossoming friendship, too. I hope it won’t be nipped in the bud!

  3. Safe travels as you head toward your new destination away from the sea Barbara. You will have new terrain to explore and will be clicking away with your camera to fill posts for Inland Wanderings. I like the name!

  4. What a delightful quote! And it’s perfect for your “farewell,” too. I’ll be eager to view your new surroundings through your camera’s lens. Best wishes for the next leg of your journey, Barbara.

    1. I loved Gilda Radnor, too, and when I read it years ago, found her autobiography very inspiring! ❤️

  5. Happy traveling Tim and Barbara, I might be able to visit with you in North Carolina as I will be moving there some time this summer. Love, Liz

    1. Thank you, Liz!!! It will be so wonderful having you as a “neighbor” and we are looking forward to having a chance to see you again soon. Wishing you a safe and happy move! ❤️
