Another beautiful day in Vermont!
The air has shifted towards those true New England cool evenings and clear mornings. While I find it a bit chilly when the temperatures cruise towards the low 50s (or even upper 40s in the elevations), a cool night means better sleeping for everyone.
I find an odd silver lining today. The virus, the hysteria, the uncertainty for the future… all of it fades away for a while today. I notice the sparkle of the dew on the grass. I photograph the morning’s soft glow on the table with its six flower arrangements marching down the middle. I linger with the chickens for a bit, listening to their soft clucking. I listen to the bird’s songs outside my office window.
These are gifts that are here, if I stop to be present for long enough. It happens with or without a virus and international upheaval of life as we know it.
Wow. I realize that my silver lining for today is having this reminder thrown starkly in my face. I need to remember this!
