Last night Sarah got home from a trip to Florida. I guess that was what was missing. Her company and presence brings this house to life and makes it feel like home. One of my many homes. In the afternoon we met at the ceramics studio and drove out to Sauvie Island for a "catch-up" hike. There was so much to say- new plans, major shifts, news and gossip- it was all we could do not to interrupt each other mid-sentence. It felt good and powerful and reminded me, on so many levels, why I am here, with this wonderful woman, in this grey and green town.
