Good bye Skegness!

Last week was raining. I thought this week won't be different. But I'm happy for these days in this small room alone (in the one with the window!) because I can focus on more writing and I had time for some "emotional housecleaning". This year I wanted to go to the pilgrim's road to Santiago de Compostella but it requires some financial background what I don't have this very right moment. Hopefully my bank account balance will be more stable on the spring and I can rethink it. I have this feeling that I want to be a little isolated from people. I think it's normal if you constantly work with people (drunk, stupid,  arrogant and loud people..) to be alone in your own world to recharge your batteries. Skegness is the best from that point. 
I arrived back yesterday.  Everything is the same, except the weather.  Hallelujah,  the sun is shining this weekend! But it seems these are the last sunny days of the year. Today I took anice long walk on the beach but there were not so many people there. Well, even the coach I took from London was almost empty. Last weekend when I came it was not full, but definitely more people came here for the weekend than this week. The summer is over I guess.
Even the club was empty yesterday. On a Friday evening! I had a few dances but we closed earlier because it was no point to be open. But I still like the people here. So different than in any big cities,  they don't have a business mind and they so innocent. I had a customer last week, he doesn't speak too much and he's just sitting alone with his beer, but he asked me for a dance. When I got naked, I see sparks in his eyes like a little boy when he's unwrapping his present under the Christmas tree. Bless him! I enjoyed the dance too, I felt special and appreciated. I wish every dance would be the same. He came back this weekend and he just constantly repeated me how beautiful,  delightful,  special I am. That's a real ego-boost for me!
Even the women are nice that come to the club. I met 2 girls in their fourties and in the first 5 minutes of the conversation they honestly told me that they were prostitutes and "we are in the same boat." I had a good talk with them, I didn't feel any competition and bitchiness than usually. You know, there are lots of things I can't share with my girl friends outside from the club business. Even they know a lot about my work they can not fully understand the situations. With these girls we wear the same social stigmas and we can talk honestly about our experiences.
I will miss these kind of people as these are my last days here. From next week I will jump again in the middle of the mind games as I go back to Switzerland on Monday. Let's get back to the hardcore business!

    sometimes people need to be alone to reflect their live and get an understanding about the situation we are in ....
