Pausing to Let the Vacation Enter Inside of Me...

The adventure is over. 
Everything gets over, and nothing is ever enough. 
Except the part you carry with you. 
It’s the same as going on a vacation. 
Some people spend all their time on a vacation taking pictures
so that when they get home they can show their friends
evidence that they had a good time. 
They don’t pause to let the vacation enter inside of them and take that home.

  1. LOVE this book! First was introduced to its wonders in 4th grade. It made such a profound impact on me that I still — 35 years later! — remember where I was when I met Claudia, Jamie, Mrs. F., and The Met. It freed my imagination to go on so many adventures!!!
