I was browsing through some of my blogs yesterday and stumbled upon this. A woman, well-known among knitters, who is touring through the US. She visited Madison. When I saw her pictures, I felt a warm sense of longing for a place I love so much. A place that has so many important memories attached - our first home, two of our children's births, great friends. One of my many homes.
I will miss seeing this place this summer, but I know that those memories are intact and those friendships aren't going anywhere. I also know that when I do see these great friends, we'll pick up like no time has transpired.
Next summer will be great. And so will this one. I look forward to three weeks spent in Australia, catching up with family and friends there. Making introductions to children born in the five year lapse since our last visit.
