Mmm's on his way home, back to his fun-filled (not) sea-going life in Virginia, while the rest of us continue to "live the dream" we all shared of living here, with "real jobs" that allow for time for a personal life and connection to the community. While I'm really happy to have that, part of me misses being on the ship, part of a close-knit team, traveling to exotic places. I didn't like most of the experience: the lack of sleep, the lack of control over where one lived, the constant criticism (often through the form of yelling), but I liked being at sea, standing watch on the bridge and in the engineering plant. I just like being on the water, on any kind of boat. Funny how Matt's visit brings it back...
