This is the view from the deck of the condo I've been renting this summer in Summit County, CO. I loved being here--here meaning both Summit County and the condo itself. Here was a haven when I needed
a haven. I looked out on this view and I felt magic.
But the condo was only ever going to be "mine" in the short-term, and so while I could play with the idea of it being home, and could try on the idea that someday I'd have a home like this--a comfortable, inspiring space in a place of beauty and magic--it was never truly going to be home.
My time here grows short, but that's okay. I had a haven when I needed a haven. And now new adventures impend.
