been back a week and with the Sun shining fiercely in Holland it feels like the holiday never stopped!

Me ‘OBK?’
OldBirdKing ‘Yes, Saskia.’
 ‘Did you miss me when I was in Greece?’
‘Yes, yes I did. As a matter of fact most of us did.’
‘Absolutely. And you, what about you?’
‘What about me?’
‘Did you miss us in sunny Greece?’
‘To be perfectly honest I hardly missed you, there just wasn’t any time.'
‘What do you mean?’
‘Well the first day, when I wandered off on my own, on my solitary beach hike, I missed you especially. I had conversations with you in my head and thought how much you would have enjoyed the views and the sun. The rest of the week activities with everyone else took over and I completely forgot about home…..’
‘As it should be, well all I can say is I’m very glad you’re back.’
‘So am I OBK, so am I’

‘Yes Saskia.’
‘Will you always be here when I go away and come back?’
‘Yes I will.’

Grace: I have always loved looking through (open) windows; no matter what the view is, there's always a sense of promise

thx, there's a softness in it, Michelle
