someone is arriving this evening for a visit.
i brought a bit of the meadow to her bedside.
The summer seems to be evaporating.
In a good, life is filled-to-the-brim kind of way.
So many exciting changes in our family...two moves and a grandbaby on the way, too.
It moves along even when you wish you could capture it and slow it down.
So I am noticing.
Like the slant of the light at all different times of the day.
The stars in the pitch dark sky of the night.
The warmth of a smile.
The coyotes' call and response in the dark.
The freshest of vegetables, prepared as simply as possible.
The hum of the ceiling fan, and sleeping under just a cotton sheet.
The tang of icy cold lemonade.
It's a practice, this noticing.
A spiritual practice.
Being fully present.
As the summer slips into the dog days, what are you noticing friends?
