to relax, to walk in the woods, to fill our bellies,
and to find some peace in a sometimes crazy world.
i think we found what we were looking for.
the mountains' autumn leaves have fallen for the most part,
the last golden leaves softening their grip on aspens & cottonwoods.
watching the wind blow clouds of fluttering leaves
is quite a magical experience...one of my favorite scenes of autumn.
day to day it is easy to get lost in the isolation of a to-do list--
so i am grateful for time outside with friends
where i feel my place in this world,
and that i am indeed part of a "family of things."
there are ugly things in this world, but there are infinitely more
beautiful things...at least that's the way i choose to see it today
as i continue my personal journey of finding beauty in a broken world...
i couldn't endure this journey without loved ones & the beauty of the outdoors.
hoping you feel your place in the world today. we need you in our family of things.
