and so we came home
we weren't ready to leave but we were ready to be back... does that even make sense?
I am always excited to hit the open road, map at my side and anticipation at every turn, but at some point or another your mind starts turning to home and you know you must make your way back, both physically and mentally
flying is definitely convenient and quick (usually!), but in my life, I wish it was only for business or emergencies
I love that driving lets you and your mind move along at the same pace, in tandem, so that when you get where you're going, you are ready to be there
when I am on holiday, I need that transition, and a two day drive is best
one day to leave where I've been and the next day to get where I'm going
it was a wonderful time, we had....
there was a wedding to celebrate, along with days and days of family joy, and the meeting of a special blogging friend...
(stories and pictures to come!)
for now, it's back to the daily busyness, and while I am putting things to right, I am still pondering some of the many wonderful experiences we had,
trying to capture and hold them
and to aid me in that effort, I signed up for my annual, requisite summer e-course
(there is nothing quite like summer school!)
this year, the obvious choice was
"The Remains of the Day"
this journal class is perfect for me now, in so many ways... the name evokes the ideal, the methodology fits my creative desires to use up what I already have, and the result will be the culmination of a most wonderful time
"gather thy rosebuds while thee may"
