The banner photo show the boys on holiday – day 2 of a three day trip to Parys. The way they get excited when I take the keys or put on hiking boots, dogs have a memory, a very good one, and also have a Longing in their Hearts.

For good measure I also listen to Gabriella’s Song from As it is in Heaven. I can’t remember how many times I watched this movie. Perhaps as many times as Shrek! And each time I find something more!

Yesterday I started reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Although not the same genre, but I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed The 100 year old man who climbed through the window and disappeared.

War is an ugly thing. There is nothing romantic about it. Time we insist that those who declare war fight their own wars! Or send their own wives/husbands/children/grandchildren to do it on their behalf. Just a thought, as I read the The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Since I have children in Jersey, Canada and 500 m up the street, and they feel all the same distance away, my overbearing feeling today is a longing for my children and holding and playing with my grandchildren.

I do not know who said the following, but is about he or she knows.

“Someone asked me if I missed you. I didn’t answer. I just closed my eyes and walked away and whispered ‘so much’.”

“Missing someone is your heart’s way of reminding you that you love them.”
