good

Here we are again, back in the USA. My parents live in Maryland, near a reserve for flora and fauna. There are a million trees, a million birds, butterflies and flowers. I haven’t taken any pictures yet, but I will. I am still taking it all in.

Nothing here has changed much since last summer, but we have. The leaves are greener, lusher, the sky a brighter shade of blue. Come to think of it, everything is brighter now, and more beautiful, and when the birds sing, they don’t sound sad at all.

We are just getting settled and soon will begin preparations for a trip to Colorado and Wyoming, to see family and visit a couple of national parks. This is only the beginning of a long, lovely, exciting summer in America.

Life, sometimes, can be so, so good, and your days peopled only with the sweet faces that you love. You think your heart might burst and instead it grows to accomodate it all.

      I know! Hopefully we will make it out to California next year.

      A friend of mine is house sitting for us while we are away. She is an animal lover and is taking good care of Lou for us.
