i just love everything
about this 1955 michigan tourism poster
according to the map
it looks like ann arbor
is the place where you can dance.
“you live as long as you dance.”

my staycation agenda:
“take wrong turns. talk to strangers. open unmarked doors.
and if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing.
do things without always knowing how they will turn out.”
come to think of it, i’ve done this my whole life

the end of a wonderful, relaxing weekend away.
“babies don’t need a vacation but i still see them at the beach.
i’ll go over to them and say,
“what are you doing here, you’ve never worked a day in your life!”
an early long weekend
a couple of hours drive
and miles away
it’s time to have a
light show/jump on the beds/stay up late
kind of end to the day
tonight we fly.
“it is not the jumps you made in your life,
but mostly the jumps you haven’t made that are the real source of regrets in your life.”
(not me, but very similar)

a dozen adults plus teenagers, toddlers, babies and dogs
all in one kitchen
end up with a perfect meal?
m and j actively working on their teamwork skills
as the fine web
of family connections
spins and grows
the communal vacation kitchen
thrives and glows.

how many minnows are in there?
what’s that thing?
is that place far away?
how many different colors are in there?
where did the sun go?
why is that bigger than my head?
who’s turn is it?
