I hope I never lose my sense of wonder. If that makes me naive, then so be it.

it is good

It is good to spend over 16 hours in a car with your family and not want to throttle anyone at the end of it.

It is good to see other places, and to appreciate the beauty of them.

It is good to watch the sun rise over the ocean and share it with someone very special.

It is good to watch three little girls utterly enthralled with waves, collecting shells, and chasing seagulls.

It is good to see children's imaginations at work, and to join in with them.

It is good to have a family that is healthy again.

It is good to see, after mansions, new condos and fancy hotels, a little white farmhouse surrounded here and there by gray log buildings, drive down a bumpy laneway, and think:

It is good to be home.
