This is Awesome

First day of school for the GrandPunks was last week.

We got a text with a picture of them all dressed up, waiting for the school bus. Seems like just yesterday that The Burrito made his big entrance and the other Grandparental Unit was in Iraq.

Where does the time go?

It's a very special case of Relativity. It's not that time has changed it's the change in space. Have you ever noticed with the kids around the house is just too darn small? Then they're gone and you realize the house is too big.

Similarly for Quantum theory and the Exclusion Principle. If one of the kids likes a thing the other will hate it.

Where does the time go?

[H]e had searched by the stream by which she had prayed to the stones, and the pool where she prayed to the stars; he had called her name up every tower, and had called it wide in the dark, and had had no answer but echo; and so he had come at last to the witch Ziroonderel. "Whither?" he said, saying no more than that, that the boy might not know his fears. Yet Orion knew.

And Ziroonderel all mournfully shook her head. "The way of the leaves," she said. "The way of all beauty."

-Lord Dunsany, The King of Elfland's Daughter.

We go through that every time the kids come home for the holidays :p

We wait and wait for them to arrive, love every minute of the time they're here, then slowly begin to long for a little peace and quiet.

They they leave, and the house is just *too* darned quiet and there's a huge hole in our hearts. Too funny :)

Beautiful passage, Grim.
