I begin and end my days right now with conversation. At turns centering, stimulating, belly-laugh funny, serious, and tender. I haven't talked on the phone with someone I've cared about, this much, in a long time. Still at the stage where we have so much to talk about, these beginning and ending check-ins are easy. But important, too. And they became that way rapidly. C's going on another business trip this coming week, and will be gone until Friday, so these phone calls will be even more important.

Like we're some green organization, that's a funny comparison. But true. And the horses are still running hard. They're beautiful, too.
