Quiet

Le Silence by Odilon Redon

I just drove back from Santa Barbara where I dropped Henry off at lacrosse camp. On the way I also dropped Oliver off at a boys' camp. They'll be gone until the end of the week.

It's already scarily quiet.

  1. I remember those days. THe boys would leave for a week and I would be here with Maggie and the quiet would drive me crazy. Then they would come back and I would yearn for peace. Can't win.

  2. I hope you enjoy the calm this week! As it turns out there's no way I could have escaped to meet you anyway. My mother is critically ill and we preparing to flying east. I've been silent everywhere - hardly reading, never writing - but will be back.

  3. I hope that you will have an easy adjustment to "le silence," and enjoy it. When Gregg & David are both going to be away at the same time, I dread it...but then, I adjust, and it is rich and good. Hoping the same for you.

  5. Will Sophie miss them or does she enjoy the occasional treat of having you all to herself?
