Phew! I may have slightly dashed off there mid – Friday, my apologies for leaving you all in the lurch with nary a farewell. We went off to Calgary with some friends to see Chris Potter and Dave Holland play at Jack Singer (what a beautiful concert hall!) and have a quick visit with J’s parents. Whirlwind yes?
Plus.. to tell the truth.. Melancholia has been going around our house as of late. We are slowly starting the process of leaving, if only mentally, our beautiful home. I’m trying to commit to memory the feel of our warm hardwood on my feet, the breeze under the door frames, the dancing of curtains across the floor. It’s a home so filled with memories and laughter and love that I can’t really imagine waking somewhere else and feeling anything but.. sad. So we’ve been sitting at the kitchen table longer, shining the windows brighter, taking more photos. Home is where the heart is.. and this place will always be in our hearts. *sigh* I know. Friggin’ lame. But I’ll miss the smell of Marlboro’s from downstairs at 3am with all my spotty lungs.
