There is nothing like sunshine and freedom to break through the grey. We are on our first week of summer vacation, and the weather is fine. Long hot days, blue skies, happy kids, and very few chores that can't wait until after -after swimming, after reading, after making something insanely yummy to eat, after a trip to the zoo or a walk in The Forest.
The Forest is the place we go for Hobbit walks. It is right in the city, and close to our neighbourhood. A piece of land left mostly as it ever was, with towering elms and maples and a lazy river running through it. It is a place full of old magic, you can feel it, and we love it there. Local carvers have been at work there too, carving Spirit Trees.
The boys and I have been talking about doing some sort of art that we can leave there too to make our own contribution to the enchantment.
