I know--that was about three computer metaphors too many.
But still. It fits for now. As I sift through pictures and memories and lessons learned, and as I try to not forget the meaningful experiences while also trying to not dwell in the past, my mind seems to be slowly catching up.
One day I might understand it all. In the meantime, it's back to the day-to-day regular life stuff for me, which is both hard to face after all that adventure, and soothing at the same time.
Here's something that has nothing to do with any of that. After I got back from Swaziland, I had a few days at home and then I was on a plane again, off to pick up my kids from my mom's house in California. While we were out there we went to a big pumpkin patch/carnival thingy with the kids, and they had a great time. These are some of my favorite pictures.
Oh my gosh look at our legs in that picture. It gives me the giggles.
