After three weeks in this beautiful country, it feels so much like home that it makes me ache in my heart to have to leave it. How happy I would be if I could bring everyone I love from my New England home to here, or find a portal which would allow me to summon them for coffee or merienda. But I guess that to remain still is a sin, and that the distance and difficulty makes things all the dearer.
Verily, the heartache that we feel is a testimony to our good work — for isn’t that the business of life? To go into the world as generously as the wind, and set down little roots of love wherever it is we roam.
