i am back home,
missed a whole night of sleep,
already mama to a beautiful new (and needy) pup
(more on that later!)
trying to pick up where i left off
reeling from all that needs to be done
wrapping my rusty brain around
details that were left undone
taxes, dr. appointments, deadlines….. on and on
realizing that i have over 1400 pics to wade through….
…and loving that….
because it brings me back
helps me realize that these new experiences
are now a part of me
these are much more
than just pretty images to me
they represent a reality
that was part of my life
for two whole weeks
and because of that reality
i am not the same as i was
so, yea, it’s a little overwhelming
and i have so much to share….
but i have to start somewhere
and i’m happy to do it!
so i hope you enjoy this little sampling
of the lushness and extreme diversity
that is the BIG ISLAND!
oh - some not-so-happy retreat news here.
