California

Back home now, feeling in a sort of dream state between here and there. My trip was so deliciously full of long talks, new perspectives, affirming clarity, natural beauty, lots of sketching, and time just simple time to my thoughts and whims...all of these things were cherished.

But really, one huge thing that I am able to take away from it is that I do not feel comfortable being all of those thousands of miles away from my children.

I am so happy to be back to their hugs, to smell the soft tops of their heads and to whisper in their ears..."I love you".

Welcome Back:D...my babies are four sweet bunnies and you know what I can't stand being away from them either. We never get too far, we used to travel alot but we got our Ella Luna and she & I are so attatched to one another and she gets so worked up when I am away from her that if I am gone longer than 2 nights she stops eating!...and with rabbits constant eating is quite necessary. Anyhow, now I am just used to never being able to go anywhere but I wouldn't trade them for a trip around the world...many people think I take my responsiblity to them to far but what can I say it just feels very unnatural to be away from them for long periods and the feeling is worse the farthur I go because i know I can't get back to them quickly....ha ha...I just loved your recent posts and wanted to share my feelings of being away from my babies too:D Be Well...I love your blog.

I'm smiling to see you back! And this is such a sweet post . . I wondered how you were faring with being away for so long from your family. I think the number of miles makes it worse, too. You must have felt a million miles away from Brooklyn. I need to take a solo trip sometime . . even though it's hard to get myself to do it, I always return home with a new vision for my life.
Welcome back!

Ah, welcome back dear friend. You were missed but I kept imagining you enjoying the California beauty and time with your girlfriend. That is priceless. I love the way you describe your babies's soft heads and whispering I love you in their ears. I miss my daughters "baby" head - when she was mostly bald and little fuzzy. There is just nothing like that. Hope to see more of your photos.

I am happy you had a safe and fun trip! A break is always nice, but the saying is so true that there is no place like home :)
