wanderlust


upon return from mon voyage... ahh... it's been a while since i've been around.


no cell phone, no computers... out of touch in a way. it was really nice to be out of the city in the wide open spaces of colorado, with lots of sunshine and the merriment of celebrating a friend's birthday.

it's nice to return as well, catch up with friends and see how they are and what they have been up to.

when signing on now this feeling came over me, oh how i miss this space where we share our stories and our doings... sweet indeed! i hope you are well!

when i was a girl, my mom would put me and my sister on an airplane every summer to go and spend the summer with family in florida. we were so little, we had our little name tags and the flight attendants would look after us until we arrived and family would pick us up at the airport. i wonder if this is when my love of travel began, or perhaps i was born with this wander lust...

found this poem last night...

go to the limits of your longing
God speaks to each of us as he makes us,
then walks with us out of the night.

these are the words we dimly hear,

you, sent out beyond recall,
go to the limits of your longing.
embody Me.

kiss u!

Oh Audrey, I am so pleased you're back! Missed you and your writing so! I love to travel as well. If I could afford it, I would take a year off with the hubby and the kids and do it. Just go see everything! Wouldn't that be fun! Hugs and love to you!!!

How lovely to have you back. Like Angie, I missed you too. And your insightful writings.

I've been just fine. Wintry Paris makes me smile. I savor hot coffee in the shelter of a cosy café... and just live every drop.

Traveling is so wonderful. That said, we have slowly started planning our Great U.S. Tour. NY in June, here I come...

I'm so glad you are back. I have also been traveling (for work, fun, but hectic!) and I have missed blogging so much. I've been reading my lovely friends, but can't wait to start writing again.
