10:34. the morning here is gorgeous. like a calm after the storm. I live with my family in the countryside; it’s far from many resources but that’s by choice; nature is church and therapy.
I will share a piece of it with you today. most of the trees have blown off their leaves. just before that there was a sudden wild show of orange flaming across the land. I’m amazed at how the colours change so fast.
there was thick frost on the windshield. one pot of hot water wasn’t enough. our breath puffing in the van.
in the morning we still walk around the lake before school. the boys argue sometimes and then switch to mischievous camaraderie.
I can allow myself to slip into nostalgia for good old times that never truly were the way I cast them, or I can choose to see what is right here in front of me. sky, puy, lake, child, Tree.
