You know how they say, plant down some roots and watch them grow? Well, I've planted a lot of roots, and very rarely do I get to see them grow.
I used to idealize this thought, the notion that home and security meant digging in deep and staying till the end of the credits. Many brilliant people do it - and rightly so - but we haven't yet been able. And I'm getting to be OK with it, learning to see the beauty in putting down a few roots, watching them trace their way around the globe, designing our underground family tree.
Cuz actually, we have done a little bit of planting.
And for a fun season (the season of our wee lad's gestation), we watched things grow.
And then we ate them.
