Digging to China
Emily called this early this morning from China to say good night as she was getting ready to go to bed. It was a strange, topsy turvey feeling, imagining me on one side of the world and Emily upside down on the other side of the world.
When we were kids, one of our favorite activities was digging to China in our tiny backyard with teaspoons. My brother Fred still likes to do this when we are on vacation in Maine:
He pretends he's keeping an eye on the children but really, it's China he's after.
