Well, it's back to school here--the kids are all awake, brushed, clothed and fed--they're leaving now to walk to the bus stop and catch the bus. For all I love being with them over vacation, it feels good to have the house all to myself.
Quiet. When I close my eyes, I can feel it all around me, seeping into my bones and slowing me down. Today I have time. Of course, I have a million things to do around the house and in the studio, but I can do them at my own pace, without any interruptions, and that makes all the difference in the world.
