I have the gift of a few days away, alone. Catching up on sleep. Silence.
I thought I'd take the chance to watch an un-animated film. One without talking animals or aliens or trolls.
I chose "Children of Men"
It was beautiful. Moving. Joyful and sad in the perfect balance.
And perfect. To be left in the silence of an empty hotel room. Without bedtime stories and glasses of water and fixing the covers. And to feel so thankful for the beautiful family I have to go home to.
