This week's theme got me thinking about how settled I am. I have made only two houses home in the past 16 years - 8 years each. And my current home is only 5 minutes away from my old house - so it was not a big move. I really enjoy the security, traditions, and stability born from staying put. I like the little things that I can count on repeating year after year.
One event I've watched for this spring is the return of the goose family along the side of the road on my drive to school.
It seems like such a perilous place for a nest, but they make this spot their home every year.
