At Rachael's parents house, Jasper the cat wins first prize in perfecting the art of doing nothing.
So it's Thursday....Wednesday...Thursday, depending on whatever country you are living in, and I really don't have that much to say, except that here is where I am spending my vacation, and it is exactly what a vacation should be. I've done nothing more than...well, nothing really. Not that nothing doesn't feel like nothing, it feels like something. Sorta like negative space is positive space....sorta like when in Graphic Design I try to convince my clients time and time again that the WHITE SPACE in their ad does not have to be filled...the emptiness, the nothingness...it's a good thing. And it's surely what makes the positive space, the somethingness...exist. Does that make sense? I guess put simply, it's the quiet downtime that is treasured as much as the chaos and exiliration of traveling and all of life's other adventures.
I've been using Australia as my little nest to read, write, draw, paint, cook, take lots of walks and sit quietly, Rachael and Jason continue to be super host and hostess, and I am becoming #1 houseguest by thanking them with homecooked meals.
Chocolate chip banana bread wins all.
