Maddie is with Grammy at the park, attending a Scottish and Basque concert.
Trev sits on the ground a few feet away from me, talking quietly to himself and recreating a dinosaur age.
Honey is at his desk, tying flies.

I sit on my tidy patio, in the shade,
giant glass of nourishing icewater at my elbow,
a stack of beloved and recalibrating books at my feet,
thoughts drifting quietly and slowly as I watch the flying, flitting things glowing in the sun against the shaded trees.

Easing quietly and peacefully into the Still.

All is well here.


  1. Glad to hear it :) I just raided your archives for book titles, so I thank you for some fabulous reading material soon to be headed our way lol :)

    Seriously, thanks - and enjoy your undoubtedly lovely evening - so nice Maddie gets a special time with Grammy, and you get a special time with your boys!

  2. This post makes me sigh contentedly.


  3. Ahh.. to sit still and read. That is one of the sweetest pleasures in life for me.


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
