Home safe-and glad to be sitting in my office with the window open. I can hear the rustle of the leaves in the wind. The coo of a dove, the chirp of a robin, the tweet of a sparrow. The lake laps against the shore all mixing together in soft song. Going away and meeting new people is always grand, but then the return home is like sinking into your favorite comfy chair. You close your eyes and say ahhh.
