It is so very odd the way I feel sometimes. I can be in a place, engaging with people, yet feel as though my mind and my thoughts are disconnected from my body. I have been feeling a bit like that since arriving in Swift's Creek. When asked what I think of the place, the school, the people, my only response is "I don't know". I honestly do not know what I am feeling or thinking, other than I feel disconnected. It is not a pleasant feeling. It is a bit like floating and I know I need to pick myself up and work out what I think. This will perhaps push the odd feelings away.
"She lived unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
The difference to me!"
- William Wordsworth
I bought a book of poems written by William Wordsworth this week. They are so very beautiful, especially the above verse. It just sounds so poignant. A person, that despite their introvert personality is loved, missed and cherished. I guess I just relate to Lucy a little.
I'm in Swift's Creek at the moment. Laura and I arrived today after a five hour road trip. It's so very pretty up here. Saying that right now seems a tad silly though. The winds are howling outside, kicking up a racket. I'm hoping that it'll die down before tomorrow, for my first day of teaching placement. I'm so looking forward to spending time here in a new place, doing new things. It's all very exciting.
