My days of roaming are coming to an end – I officially begin work tomorrow morning at 10am. Where I’ll be tomorrow night? Still up in the air. Advantages to soon having a ‘home.’ Personal space. A real shower towel. Income from the job. Disadvantages? The thrill of not knowing where I’ll be spending the night until 6 or 7 that evening.
From Cork, Brian and I hitched a ride to Youghal (Pronounced yall). Youghal was a splendid little beachside town. Our hostel should have been named the Beach Haven Hostel as this one was indeed a stones throw away from the beach. We arrived in the dark last night but had a chance to walk around town today. We found an old pub on the edge of town that had closed down – it was for sale. We decided we should purchase the building and bring Clyde’s back to life. Any potential investors out there? If I would have walked past a hotel that was hiring and provided accommodation, I would have stayed in Youghall. Alas, I didn’t find this hotel, so here I am in Dublin, ready to begin work for face2face tomorrow.
I don’t have much else for you. I should be attempting to sleep – early morning tomorrow. I’ll leave you with this …
we’ve come back to where we were.
Only, where we were may
not be as it was
because of who we’ve become,
which, after all, is why we left.
