The other day we went to the park to play for a little bit.  The day was beautiful.

The sun shining, the light perfect.

You could hear the breeze and the needles fall.  You could hear the birds, and the kids, and the trees.  I could hear autumn.

I sat down, knitted, had my tea, and watched the kids play.  Run. Find. Laugh. Build. Run. Find. Laugh. Build.

After a little while… pine needles in my tea and my knitting, a cone falling next to me.  The breeze.  Oh yes, the breeze, carrying autumn everywhere with it.  Filling the air with its glow, its beauty.  Natural beauty.  Nature.

Took a deep breath.  Enjoyed the sunshine. Heard the branches sway up there.  Breathed again.

We came back to the house, filled. Completely filled.

The colors.

Oh yes.  The light and the colors.  And the sounds. The sights.

Fall is here and I think, a most beautiful one.

¡Feliz Cumpleaños Mamá!  Today my Mom and I turn a year older.  Together, the same day.  This time, we add up to 116.  We celebrated some while they were here.  I know she’s celebrating with my brothers and her friends this week too. We are doing the same here, half a world around.

DSC_0002-smallHappy Birthday Mamá!  To a healthy and adventurous one.
