Last week witnessed a visit from Sam and Corinne, en route from London, UK, to Bristol, UK, via China, Southeast Asia, New Zealand, and North America; we were their penultimate stop in a six-month odyssey of geographic and personal exploration. They are workers in the non-profit arena, promoting volunteerism, corporate civic engagement, and programs for youth. They will make new roots in Bristol beginning next week, energized and focused by the half-year of travel.
They were delightful, both individually and together, with an equality and synergy of relationship not at all reflected in their choices of position in the greenhouse.
Corinne fell in love with 14 newly-hatched chicks. I counted them after she departed and we've still got 14.
