We live in a different place when the house quiets down. We fill the rare silence with talk of "whens" and "ifs" and "if whens". Just this morning we stretched out in the cozy and found ourselves at a beach house listening to the sea breeze outside our window. When actually, we knew it was the last cool breeze for the day and it wasn't the ocean we heard but the dry wind whistling through the cactus barbs. Yes, we should "make the most of now", "live in the present, for it will pass us by", and we shouldn't "dream away our lives"....but, somehow, for us now, and for even a little bit longer, an exception is in order. At least for today we will let our minds rest on the future, when there will be more of "we".
