Yesterday we walked in the last sunlight of the afternoon. Eventually we would find our way home to start baths and dinner, fold laundry, read bedtime stories, fit in some knitting. But first we walked away from those things, through the streets around our house. We walked, examined our neighbourhood, played games, inspected spiders, talked about the simple and complex, admired the details, before turning homewards a little lighter, a little more connected as a family.
Something I think we need to give ourselves time to do more often.
