Right this second (now)

It’s been a while, you and your letters that all came together out of the broadness of my mind. Back when I’d just let my heart go onto keys and out would come bits of my brain and heart and memories and hopes and, well, you know the rest. It’s been a while since I simply released, let that control…

Week in Pictures

Ruby was obsessing about getting into the car when we got a surprise burst of sunshine, so I took her for a ride down to the St John’s Bridge and walked around for a wee bit. With all the rain, the river has flooded and you can see how the water has come up onto the grass where we’d normally…

And when I got home I open the mailbox to find a…

Nesting? Yes, Nesting.

Ready? Set? GO! March is quite a month for us. We are nesting – in multiple ways – as we start on a first chapter and a final chapter in two different aspects of our life.
