Opening the many red doors that happen when we take risks.
Joining creativity together,
with the fusions of friendships.
This trip away was a sense of quieting, within my heart.
A joy in new discoveries.
& a renewed hope in the next chapters.
The days past poetically with rapid speed,
yet the trip needed to end.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder both near & far..

:: with my eyes*
I saw a girl having a tea party
*With a 'missing you' look in her eyes.
*Family on a spontaneous Skype night
that pull out all the stops to chat & entertain.
:: with my ears*
I heard the voices of my family
through the miles.
*New sounds created from the mouth of a baby boy.
*Playing with him each day as we watched him grow.
*The giggles of a little girl chasing her puppy around the home.
*Then in pausing, she hugged gently
& whispered she was beautiful.
:: with my tastes*
*Fresh Atlantic lobsters.
*Experienced sushi made with fish caught fresh within hours.
*Delighted in fresh homemade banana beggars..a few times.
:: I shared insightful moments with friends*
that I have had the honor of knowing for years.
*Deep meaningful moments shared.. all gracious.
*Watched a beautiful moment as she tried on the hand-knit sweater for her, then again with more friends.
*Resting on a moss covered rock with ducks
surrounding the ripples of stillwater lake.

*Watched children with their parents indulge in donuts.
*They were covered and sticky
& were as happy as anyone has ever been.

*Visited the ocean.
*We walked in busy traffic within a quiet neighborhood.
*I lived for the day.
*Wrote many pages.
*I dreamed time away.
*Stretched distance as far as I could go.
*Breathed in peacefully.
*Softly touched all kinds of malabrigo yarns.
*I've seen many days of snow, of rain...it drizzled on down.
*When the sun came out, we could see the bay through the trees.
*Explored the streets of Halifax.
*Videoed random areas that captured my attention.
*Listened to fine tuned advice, from the managers of Starbucks,
a postal worker
& knitters that spin at yarn shops.
