Oh, home

Feeling more than a little bit homesick today.  At times, I forget how quickly our hard felt realities become piecemeal anecdotes.  Our present is so present it seems solid enough to stand on.  But, all that surefooted confidence is lost in a pause – every time, trumped by the moment of reflection.  I catch glimpses of that strength of presence, fleeting memories won over in my little fight against time’s passage, and remember a little bit of the future I saw in my past.  Did it look much like this?

I spent a peaceful afternoon with these beautiful women in my life a few days before I left for Chile… there will be someone new to know when I get home.
