Have you ever been suddenly aware that your world has shifted? I guess we all did on 9/11--everyone agreed that nothing would be the same. But this Easter weekend I discovered that my own world has moved. While celebrating with family at my son's house, I realized that this is probably where we'll have family gatherings from now on. I won't be hosting the feast, and I don't even mind very much. I can give him the silver tea set with delight and watch the leadership shift to the next generation. (I expect to retain editorial and commentary privileges!) What seems odd is that it feels so obvious, peaceful, appropriate.
And so, on to the next project.
