It is unearthly beautiful here today, the light, the way it shines on leaf and spiderweb.
For this moment all is quiet and peaceful. Soon, the boys will arrive and our day together will begin.
The chickens are still in their coop, I hear them quietly talking. The dogs are already snoozing again after going outside. The cat, too. Dear god but that animal chose wisely when she picked my porch to meow on. She is fat, she is happy, she wants in and out of the room all night.
I can hear the dripping of last night's little raindrops collected on the leaves being released to the ground. And the light, that light, falls like blessings.
