We are safely back home and getting settled into the old routine with River.  Our bags are unpacked and the jet lag either hasn't set in yet or isn't as bad as it was on the way there.  

It's hard to believe we've been where we've been and we've seen what we've seen, and the whole time, home was here just the same.

River and I went on a bike ride and  our neighborhood, that two weeks ago felt unremarkable, is actually full of bird feeders and lawn ornaments and two car garages.   For the first time I appreciated that our town has paved roads, street signs, and sidewalks- without a soul living on them.
