These Small Hours
In Meet the Robinson‘s Rob Thomas sings “All life remains in these small hours”, and I know it, I know it, now. Until we can catch up (never) and make a video of it, I ‘d like to share a collection of videos dear to my heart. This, This, This is why we are a nomadic family traveling the globe. Not to discover foreign lands (an added bonus), not to raise trilingual children (looks good on a resume), not to create open-minded world citizens (though it’s cool), and surely, not to live our one life to the fullest by making our dreams come true (ok, so I’m almost lying). But, why do this nomadic family thing? Watch the videos and find out! (and tell me what you think!)
I already did. I found out why we left our serene lives in Israel to travel the world. It’s called time. I have time now. Time to exercise, time to write, time to connect with my kids like never before. Time to get to know my children, to teach them the words of songs that are dear to my heart, to read to them fine literature that I always said I would share with them one day; to hang out and talk and cuddle and have no where in particular that we need to go, or the next stressful something we need to do.
I Found It! and this short glimpse is what it’s all about for me. Yes, we are seeing new worlds together; yes, we are bonded as a family as we together experience unknown languages and have all of these far-out experiences; but, moreso, we just get to hang out, and sing. No matter how nomadic we will be; it’s the lack of movement, that ability to go within, that has made all the difference for this family.
Thank God for the nomadic family life. We left to explore the world, and discovered ourselves.
