despite the fact i’m sitting in the Pensacola Airport waiting to board my plane home while sipping a mediocre cup of green tea, i can’t help but feel content. after all, i’d be lying if i said i was totally thrilled about the prospects of a week long family holiday – all fourteen of us, in one house, in FLORIDA. glad to be going? sure. thrilled? no so much. but i’m happy to say it want well. really well, actually. and don’t get me wrong – i really enjoy my family, and they continue to provide me with so much kindness and support. it’s just that i enjoy them in small doses, and preferably not all of ’em at once. still, the time with them was great. perhaps i’m learning to overlook the small idiosyncrasies that have bothered me in the past, or maybe it’s that i’ve found a bit more patience and acceptance with all the living i’ve done in the past few years.
while i didn’t shoot many pictures here this week simply because i hate always feeling like i’m missing the moment stuck behind my camera, i did make a few and posted them over on my photo blog if you’d like to have a look. i also didn’t check my phone much this past week. instead, i wanted to be here taking it all in without my mind lost wandering in twitterverse or the ever worsening land of Facebook. so if i didn’t return your text or email for a bit longer than usual, that’s why. and as a side note: if you haven’t unplugged lately, i encourage you to try it. even if only for a day, you might find it pleasantly satisfying.
