Time Zones

Yes, we are home today. Home in the physical sense, but not entirely in state of mind. Sounds and images of our unbelievably spectacular experience in Portugal swirled in my thoughts as I awoke, several times, this morning. Yesterday’s travel had us going for 24 hours straight, except for a few bouts of napping on planes, and we collapsed into our bed at a decent time, hoping to quickly regain synchronization with our Minnesota time-zone. My body tried to wake up more than once at an early hour, thinking it was 10 or 11 a.m. Portugal time, but with little effort, I returned to slumber amid the dreamy thoughts I was still on Ian’s farm.

It feels strange not being able to open the shutter and look out to see if the sun is about to crest the ridge or to wander over and check on the horses this morning. We miss them already.
