I feel warm wind on my face. I hear the rustle of leaves in the offshore breeze. The deep blue of the lake reflects the cloudless sky. The pugs are content to bask in the sun. Folk near by are listening to a sixties channel. I know every song. I know every word of every song. "Sugar pie honey bunch, you know that I love you." "Can't you see that I'm lonely. Rescue me." "One two three. That's how elementary its gonna be." I'm bathed in nostalgia.
"To release ties and bonds and relinquish control makes life simpler." (Hillary Barrett Yijing, 41)
Today I'm grateful.
