THIS MORNING the Church O’ The Pines awaits us as we return from warm and sunny Florida. We know that a temperature differential of 90 degrees or so will greet us. But we will also be greeted by Sparky the Cardinal and our little chickadee friends. By the Three Crows and the resident opossum. By fox and otter and white tail and the blue jay clan, and by the tall deacons of the forest. There is writing to do and piano students to teach as we step back into ‘reality’ from our wonderful family trip. And I will remember, as I always remind myself—it’s all one trip.
