"There are so few empty pages in my engagement pad or empty hours in the day or empty rooms in my life in which to stand alone and find myself...Too many worthy activities, valuable things, and interesting people. For it is not merely the trivial which clutters our lives but the important as well. We can have a surfeit of treasures--an excess of shells, where one or two would be significant."
Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
This makes me think of Sarah, Plain and Tall and the colors she missed on the prairie.
Soon, I must fly home, too.
