Many miles away, children sleep uneasily, expectantly, going through mental lists of toothpastes and favourite shirts. or have children even acquired that nasty habit yet? maybe it's images of water balloons and sand castles that keep them awake. too many memories, too many histories to sort out, stories to tell to themselves tonight. they chuckle to themselves and the younger ones who share their bed are shaken out of their slumber. they hear the stories, the jokes, the laughter. tomorrow is going to be charged, it is going to shimmer. a revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having

Camp... :)
My heart lurches.
Tomorrow WILL shimmer.

You know what? I started sorting through my photos from Ecuador during my spring break. They were still in the Konica envelopes, gently placed in a box, tucked away in my closet...

a dance without revolution is not worth having, either.

Heard things are going well at the first week of camp. I spoke with Daniel by phone, he was standing on the balcony of the Casa Weber looking out at the ocean. Man!
