I’m here, enjoying my coffee doing a bit of reading in the AM. We are “home” visiting family. The kids are at camp for a bit of that and so MC and I have had some lovely alone time together. I’m focusing mostly on the beauty of home (though it is far hotter here than normal), enjoying the lake, enjoying the quiet, relishing the time to talk with MC about all kinds of topics, including us. I think I just need a break from writing right now. I’ll be back. In the meantime, MC has had some nice time to be introspective and put some thoughts down in writing, so we might as well share those thoughts.
