Apple in Hand

Evelyn: A little ripe smile amidst the labor. New space, new temporary desk, and lots of data to compress... my mind wishing for opportunities to stop as I take to "smoke breaks" with a few peers.  My apple was about the happiest looking thing in a florescently lit, bare-walled, faculty office... something familiar amidst all the ways this job keeps me challenged.

Monica: Slowly, things are getting done and checked off the to-do list. There is so much to do, I get overwhelmed thinking about it. I have to remind myself to breathe and savor the present moment, whatever it is. Crawling into bed after a busy day, I remembered I still needed a photo. I grabbed my camera and peered over Michael's shoulder as he lay propped on his side, reading his book.

  1. I am truly sorry I could not come over and help you pack as I did before. I have commitments to keep and things to take care of before we take on our journey. But I also know you and Michael would manage just fine. Soon all this will be just another page on your journal. Life goes on opening a new horizon everyday for us to wonder, and ponder, and worry, and maybe realize that this is just, another day full of simplicity.
