In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things, does the heart find its morning and is refreshed.

Khalil Gibran



There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Jane Austen


See It

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.

The final garden hurrah is upon us, with a cold snap to arrive by the end of the week. It was a challenging summer: the deaths of two beloved children, a horrible job left, a knee injury, a surgery, and wretched COVID. We are ready to move forward, to welcome the frost and snow. A new season to begin again. Cheers to that!

Eye Candy

A perfect Sunday morning at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Only a select few trails are open to dogs, but since my surgical wounds linger, and we are not fully recovered from COVID (so close!), we didn’t need a terribly long hike before feeling tired. Worth it, still. How lovely to have spirits lifted by the beauty of nature.
