So much to be grateful for that my heart sings.
big, very wise trees that reach up everywhere into the sky on a strong, immovable trunk
singing tree bugs
the smell of lingering grilled food
the cozy glowy lights in other people's beautiful homes
free kitchen chair cushions, new, in someone's recycling!
airplanes with their lights, landing, the people on them safe
the overall smell of summer
being aware enough to recognize the specialness of it all
the gift of hearing
the gift of breath
the gift of health
the gift of love
the gift of life
the gift of special friends
i do love my walks, especially on nights like these where it really is *just* a walk -- not thinking, or planning (which all come together wonderfully many times, to my happiness -- *just*, and yet so much more than words can convey.
and, randomly, here are pics from the yarn sale in Louisville that i should have posted ages ago. the back of my car has been slowly filling with goodness all summer. here is some of it.
and some loveliness from the Missouri Botanical Garden.
tomorrow night i'm going here.
