vacant

i'm lost.

today the greatest thing that happened was being on my deck and watching my daughter catch fireflies.

after she caught at least 9 or 10, she showed them to me, then let them go.

One by one.

And with each one flying away, she named them and said goodbye.

"Goodbye Alexis."

"Goodbye Ryan."

"Goodbye Sarah."

She and her sister are the lights that keep me burning.

Oh my goodness, Jana. That's such a beautiful little post. It gave me goosebumps -- the good kind.

Carry on.

Wow! That was lovely.

I get lost in much the same way. How wonderful it is.

Bente: even if I'd had a video camera, it could never have captured the essence of that moment.

CK: thanks, with all that is going on, it's these things that keep me going.

Odd Mix: I think some people forget to get lost.

Goodbye, Alexis.
So nice of you to drop in.
It's been a big blast.

(Great kid, Jana.)
