wanderlust by itself

There will be amazing music there, and yoga!

All the things we love, but never take the time to give ourselves.

This weekend we will give them.

    i can see the horses. they are just hiding in the grass.
    it is so silly for me to be about my job. ( i feel)
    but i cant get away.
    because i cant switch days with people.
    i have been looking at trying. but i cannot make it.
    i love your little trees and little people waiting at the bus stop with their little suitcases.
    you look lovely.

    still sad we missed each other.

    Grandma D wishes she could join the revolution and yoga and music with the ones she loves . . . but there is a house to be built and stuff to do. Maybe next year.
    Love you so,
    D

    I hope the time in Tahoe adds to the purpose of your family's trip to California this Summer. It has been good.

    That was so beautiful! I felt personally touched that you wanted *me* to be there. Lol. I know, silly, but true. I am feeling soooo wanderlusty…but afraid to go on my own. And from Seattle, where to? But I have an urge to put everything in storage and just find a friend to drive and explore. *Sigh*. Please send me a friend to do that with. Thank you! ;) Harriet
