The boys and I started our European vacation this week, beginning with the Stonehenge. Rain drove most of the visitors away, so we were able to enjoy the site with minimal disruptions. The stones, although they're near a motorway, are really quite remarkable.

"Stand over here," a guide told us, "the spiritual aura is strongest." I stood for a few minutes in the "most concentrated" point of spiritual contact and felt like a soccer mom from the US looking at old rocks. Still, it's amazing and beautiful. The countryside is pristine and everything smells of grass and earth.

At the close of the day, we took a picnic of Cornwall pasties up to one of the ancient burial mounds (they form an outer circle around the stonehenge). Yes, they let people walk on them. We sat atop the mound laughing and singing and totally enjoying our first day in England. I love this place!

Love the pictures in Europe. While I am here in California, I'm trying very hard not to dislike you.

I could use a few pub crawls myself this week. Living vicariously through you.
