Not So Sunny, Not So Warm Florida

Not so sunny, not so warm in florida - Pine Tree

HERE IN NOT SO SUNNY, NOT SO WARM FLORIDA, two year old granddaughter Sofie is not quite ready for grandparent hugs yet. Evidently FaceTime phone calls for a year and a half are not quite the same as in-person. But we are immensely patient. Mostly. And so VERY grateful we are able to safely make this journey and begin to catch up, something that has been and remains so difficult for so many families. My only other big item to accomplish this trip is a visit to the small cottage-home of personal heroine Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, who nearly single-handedly saved the Everglades, working on that mission from the age of 76 to 106. She lived in that tiny stucco cottage, no dishwasher no air-conditioning, from 1926 to 1998. Tremendously inspiring. Meanwhile, it is Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star and Winnie-the-Pooh and favorite word, No! (with a smile) and working on hugs.
