My daughter is home this week. One week for me to be with her between her Sophomore and Junior year in college before her wanderlust takes her to Yellowstone NP for the summer. So far we have run errands, shopped for hiking clothes, caught up on doctor appointments and put away items I’m purging that she will want for her own apartment sooner than I will be ready.

Death has taught me to live in the now. So that’s what I’ll be doing this week, enjoying today with my girl.

Take care of you.

Not all those who wander are lost.”
