from my spot at the computer at the table..
do you know i don't have a passport?! it's a real crying shame. i've traveled in canada and been to puerto rico. i've flown to the west coast and to florida (of all places. sorry if you live in florida. where i visited just wasn't for me).
this year i am gifting myself a passport. i am a person who needs a passport.
i am sitting here in the early morning appreciating the cool winter light. i am also listening to the noises of a sleeping house. i hear the dog snoring on the sofa, the hum of the refrigerator, lots of scratching in the walls from squirrels and mice making themselves at home. but mostly i am hearing my daughter sleep fitfully. i wake her once to ask if she is having a bad dream. she says no and falls back to sleep. she goes back to her bad dream and her tossing and turning.
it took me a long time to realize your kids go lots of places you cannot go. you can only ask them about it and hope they can tell you.
