Last week was our spring break. We drove to Illinois to visit friends, drove back to Pittsburgh, then piled onto a plane and traveled to Florida for some beach time with Muschi and Paschi (Marimar's maternal grandparents). The common element in our two destinations? Both places were flat.
The flatness was unexpectedly bracing--it was so good to commune with the open sky and sea. The landscape was a great reminder of how our little lives touch the immensity of creation and how our greatness lies that we witness great things. All in all, a very nice vacation.
