Summer Saturdays – Homecoming

They immediately found the circular pattern of the new pantry. Around and around they walked, stepping over the entry, walking around the slot for the pocket door, around and back again. In their new home, the home we are making for us to live in, to walk in circles in, to grow and grow and [...]
