Pressing Pause

If I could, I would press "PAUSE" right now! Actually, this afternoon was truly the perfect pause moment:
my older three kiddos were at school, my youngest was playing happily in the sandbox, the temperature was near 80 degrees (yes, it's March in upstate New York!), there was not a cloud to be found, there was the gentlest of breezes, i had Pandora playing in the family room with the volume turned way up...The Story by Brandi Carlisle station was on, playing songs like Almost Lover, Hallelujah, Chasing Pavements, and Falling Slowly, and i was sipping the most delicious iced coffee.
i had more "pause" moments this evening...every scrap of chicken divan was devoured at dinner, my girls put on a poetry reading "show" for us after dinner, and my almost 10-year-old and i enjoyed some classic Relient K together.
Savoring every moment...

  1. Jodi Picoult named this book The Tenth Circle, because in the book her father Daniel is a comic book author and during the story he is trying to create his first real comic book that kind of involves him and his daughter. The name of his comic book is also The Tenth Circle, and involves the ten circles of hell. During the book at the end of each chapter, you get to read his comic book and what it is about instead of him telling you during the story.


I'd love to hear what you have to say about this...
