‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Returning, I think?

Don't know if anyone reads this anymore, but...

I'm back after a four month hiatus. The four months included a trip to Siberia to visit daughter #2 (Anya) as well as a side trip to Germany to visit my brother Jim and his family; then 3 months of my busy work season, teaching Shakespeare and running a Shakespeare summer camp for 135 kids and teens. The last show of the season was Saturday, and now I'm floating free for a month! The plan: get house in order and spend inordinate amounts of time with my semi-neglected teenage daughter. We started yesterday and did a round of shopping for the house, hiking the woods, making dinner for her grandmother ( my mom) and generally just enjoying each other's company.

Oh, and did I fail to mention her sister Anya (my other daughter, by all accounts) is scheduled to move here in late fall? Yes. Really. She even has her passport finally!
