Home Again, Home Again

“I think the best vacation is the one that relieves me of my own life for a while and then makes me long for it again.”
— Ann Patchett, from “Do Not Disturb,” Gourmet, August 2006

A month is a long time to be away from home and husband.  I am glad to be back.

But before I move my thoughts back to my life here, I’ll share a few photos of cats from my travels:

      I’m so glad. Now I have to get creative about my Seattle blog posts. I’ve already lost the feeling of seeing things here with fresh eyes. How soon we slip back into taking sights for granted!

        I also have trouble taking photos around my home or immediate landscape. The second I go somewhere new I’m clicking away and having all sorts of ideas.

    It’s some trip you’ve been on! It’s been fun reading all the different reports.

    You look so happy and relaxed Rosemary…love your hat…where can I get one like that? 🙂 And oh all those kitties…the masters of relaxation and reflection! Great photos of them!!

      I found my hat at a garage sale! I think you could find one like it at REI or Coumbia sportswear. I love it.

    After my last homecoming around Easter when I visited my son on Iceland I felt a kind of lost. I remembered a book I read years ago about the shaman Rolling Thunder. There was the situation that Rolling Thunder left a train and laid down on the ground. Somebody asked him why he was doing that. His answer was: My body is here. I’m waiting for my soul.

    What a wonderful trip it’s been! Your photo is lovely – you look just as relaxed and contented as all those kitties. The only downside to your trip is that now I have a serious case of travel fever! I’ll have to see what I can do about that.
