déan tú féin sa bhaile

[make yourself at home]

mmmm it is
sweet to be home.
I arrived last night, after a long day of driving and uncertainty, from Khasab.
The children will be missed, their frustrations not so much, but my own growth will remain!
- Reward enough for long weeks away.

I have missed family, blogging, dressing up, good coffee. Contentedness in simpler surroundings is a joy though, and natural beauty is an added pleasure in the mountains. Though I realize how I enjoy and am blessed by the material things and aesthetic happiness, I'm reminded of their ultimate meaninglessness!

I did do some painting in Oman, and drawing with my new rapidograph Koh-i-noor pens (eeee!) and that will be shared later. For now, how are you all?
