It is the week after Christmas and I am in California. This is where I was born and raised, and where my heart is. I love the sea, the salt air, the palm trees with their ridiculous trunks.
I have been journaling.
I have been crafting it up in my mom’s extraordinary sewing room, making creatures from socks and parts of socks.
Even crafted a sea monster.
We have been visiting, drinking tea, eating fabulous meals, watching old family movies and running the dogs on the beach. We went whale watching, and saw no whales, but had our faces in the sea air watching dolphins and their babies, leaping simultaneously in the foam.
I have been resting, imagining, reading, drawing and slowing way, way down. It is a treasure of a time. My kids are off with their aunts and uncles and I love that. There has been rain, and cooking, and sweets. We are all healthy. What else does one need?
It is Friday, and time for a haiku.
Socks, art, family
All I need I have right here
Time together treasured.
