And Then



Poof! All that work, all that planning...15 minutes and it is over, gone, gone, gone. I love gathering my family and friends around my table, I love the ceremony, the pretty things, the party-ness [the cooking, not so much].



The dishes are done, the food is eaten. The holiday was lovely...

And I was very happy the next day, as my kids left before dawn for a ski weekend, to find that the wind had calmed and the beach was silent but for the waves and the gulls' cries---a place of peace and renewal.
