We are home now, full of memories (not to mention brand new cold virii) and photographs and a strong resolution to spend vacation time in a warm place. Any warm place. Possibly even Guam. Actually, now that I write it, Guam seems like a good idea. It is an island, and the weather is probably at least different from here.
Different is good. Travel is good. I have been traveling so little lately that I had forgotten how much I like it — new places, and putting down temporary roots in them.
Anyway, hot tea is here, and I must drink it before it becomes cold.
