If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

He's Back!

Boy that is. We still have a week to go before b is home from Alaska.

After going out for lunch in dowtown Big Southern City, we had a very long drive home from the airport. Luckily for me Boy was driving as we hit tremendous traffic and then a thunderstorm. Boy is a much better driver than I.

He showed me all the clothes and bedding (for his dorm room) that his Dad and Step Mom bought him. He needed an extra bag just to get it all home.

We went to the store together and I made a simple dinner. Then we watched Jesus Camp and discussed the role of religion in our society. Now he's sitting next to me reading In The Time of Butterflies. (I read it while he was away and it is excellent).

You all see where this is going don't you?
