1,000 Gifts

|| vacations are more than vacations. Vacations are the act of grabbing minutes and hours and days with both hands, stealing against the inevitability of time. I want to sock away memories like gold coins because I'm going to need them someday to get me through the years. There will be a day when our family as we know it will no longer exist, and I want to know in that moment that I wasn't at the office or doing dishes when I could have been walking on the dock with my dad, when I could have been drinking tea and eating ginger cookies on the porch with my mom. I don't want to be building my bank account or my dream house, when I could be making crackers and cheese for dinner because we were on the boat till way after the shops closed, sunburnt and sandy and windblown, and happier there and together than anywhere else with anyone else ||
