I took the boys up to Sydney for a week in the winter holidays and the goodness lingers on. The simple, wonderful things - the luscious green leaves of my parent's jungle garden, the smell of fresh pizza from the Lebanese bakery, the steady hum of urban living, and so much unapologetically blue, winter sky! Walking over familiar tiles, paths, streets and parks. The faint pink of the camellia tree in bloom, and the way the light falls in the kitchen. My childhood home and neighbourhood will always feel familiar and comforting. Always a gift to return to.
