The universal through the particular

The prodigal (meaning our eldest daughter) with her possessions has arrived safely at her destination in rural Guatemala where she will be spending the next three months doing volunteer work.  In the midst of waiting for her email that she had travelled without incident on a six hour trip from the airport in Guatemala City via private car and boat ride, I wandered the house in a restless fashion trying to concentrate on everything else that required my attention.  A few distractions appeared, camera in hand, of a bouquet of flowers, an offspring hiding behind their computer and a raging fire in the hearth. Nothing and everything resides in these quiet moments. Happiness is knowing your loved ones are sleeping someplace safe and sound.
