Day Two Hundred Fifty Nine, October 8, 2011

on the way home

No matter where we travel to, no matter how exciting an adventure is, there is nothing more satisfying than the return home. What waits at home is a sense of relief, to go back to the familiar, to the relaxed knowing that all is well and safe, the joy of being back in the nest. And for a child, their toys become exciting all over again, their bed a haven of comfort and their home a place of well-being. Yes, it is always good to go back home.

she reflects the spring

This morning Spring was filling the air, the weather felt finally mild enough to leave heavy jackets behind and the sun was shining.

She decided to dress herself for school as she often now loves to do. And out she emerged looking like a jar of jelly beans 🙂

But I could not blame here, the trees were behaving in the same bizarre manner.
