Back to Reality

I had a great time in Orillia with my cousin Bruce and his wife Diane, and it’s hard to work my head around being home again. When I’m away from my day-to-day responsibilities for any length of time, I easily forget them. But this is a good thing because it reminds me that there’s more to life than the tasks we have to do (or choose to).
On Monday night Bruce and I had a long talk, and he told me he’s been keeping a journal since January 1st 2007. I’m always surprised when a man keeps one and I shouldn’t be because David, my dad and my brother Robin do too.
Bruce explained that he was inspired to start journaling after a friend of his had passed away, and he discovered the guy had been keeping a journal for almost fifty years! I’ve never let anyone take a peek at mine before, but I showed it to Bruce and he thought it was “cool.”

P.S. The amaryllis John bought me in December is doing well. Now it has a baby, so I’m hoping it will flower too.

Beautiful Amaryllis!! It goes very well with your header too. These flowers remind me of my dad's mom, she had a lot of them. It was a stunning view when they were in full bloom.
