Unexpected mercies

Posted on November 7, 2010


I believe I may have mentioned that it snowed, and that it was cold.  I suppose it’s only fair to mention that it has been a very nice weekend, and the snow is all melted.  We had a fine walk in the woods, where there is warm sun to be had now that all the leaves are down.  We examined the shelf fungus on the birches, and tried to capture a face in a tree.    

We sat in the sun in a fine high place and surveyed our domain.  The silvery money plant pods are empty of their seeds and ready to be gathered.  Satisfactory.  We did no chores, and have no guilt.  Some days are meant for simple gratitude.
