walking for miles & miles on saturday morning.
taking in the brightness.
of the wide, blue sky.
of changing leaves on trees & the quilt of fallen leaves covering the ground.
of doggie wonders.
of my heart lifting & my face softening.
of people running, cleaning yards ~ knees on earth, biking, pushing strollers & walking with beloveds ~ hands holding hands & cups of coffee.
attempting to capture just a sliver of this.
how it means so much.
the presence of beings & creatures.
how it saves my life.
wide open eyes, fresh air, rosy cheeks, the sound of others' voices, the knowing you are there & feeling connected.
asana, pages of writing & 14 handwritten notes of gratitude on sunday morning.
waking to this practice.
pen & paper.
this & you.
