This is amazing! and has been right under my nose! it is the week before the art retreat i used to go to…easy peasy! and it's held in The Best Place on Earth…Rockywold Deephaven Camps. I am certain that God sleeps here. i love it so much that i've requested my ashes be scattered there, when the time comes. (not before).
this morning was a particular brand of perfect that is only found in early fall…Henry and I went for an early walk through the woods…fog sat low on the ground - clouds come to earth, and the air was cool which made for a snuggle in my favorite hooded sweatshirt. the woods were filled with sounds of woodpeckers and crows…leaves have begun to fall somewhat half-heartedly, and the lake has turned a spectacular shade of turquoise. geese stage up and leave for the season. i'm hoping to capture my injured duck soon and get her to rehab. she's wily, though, and will have food till the lake freezes. there's a Great Blue Heron that hangs with her. the smell of early woodsmoke was in the air - nights are cold now, with an actual freeze the other night. the sun slanted through the trees, making everything magically lit.
every morning is such a surge of gratitude, it must flow out of my pores!
oh hella yeah -
