Josiah, my perler bead maniac, brought this to me recently. He told me that the green piece is America, and the blue piece is Africa, and the red piece is us flying on the plane in between.
Okay, so it's not an artistic masterpiece. But I love that it showed me what's going on in his little head.
I have a map too. It's a bit more sophisticated, I guess. I've been sitting there this week, pouring over my map, making little black dots on it. See those black dots? They represent the Anders, the McBrides, the Limas, the McLerans, the Bunnells, the Pelczars, the Millers.....and many more. We're playing connect-the-dots these days.
I can't wait.
I would like to know, though, how it is possible to simultaneously ache for the beauty of two very different places, at the same time?

Ah, my divided heart.
