Ten days were spent in a combination of meditation, time with long-standing cherished friends, my own family and the company of 80 others, 700+ acres of wooded and meadowed land, food direct from garden to table, the absolute joyous chaos of over 100 children ranging from 6 weeks to 18 years old, campfires, music, dancing, and so on.
Back home, the cat curls into me in greeting, the moon close and full, my heart broken and tenderized in the best possible way.
Missing people, missing experience, but happy to curl back in to quiet with books and tea.
On an admin note, I've heard from a couple of people that posting comments is ranging from wonky to impossible. If you're having trouble leaving a comment (and let me take this opportunity to say how nice it is when you do comment), hit me up on Facebook so I can see if I can get to the bottom of the problem.
Your word prompt this week for the 100 Word Challenge is from The Thirteenth Tale by Jane Setterfield. Let me just say, if you're a total book nerd and have ever fantasized about living in a used and/or antiquarian bookstore, you should get this book.
