“When I opened the door I found the vine leaves speaking among themselves in abundant whispers…” (expert from “Aware” by Denise Levertov)
Hello friends! It’s funny how that extra day off from “labor” ends up being a chance to catch up on chores around the house isn’t it? I did enjoy myself this morning though, walking in a field of yellow flowers. One of the best parts of late summer here is fields of yellow. Is yellow the happiest color? Sometimes I think it might be. I once painted my whole house yellow - I might have to do that again.
For now, here’s a glimpse while I find my way through all the photos for the best ones and some other moments from the past couple of weeks and a video I finally finished!
A little video of a spiny-backed orb weaver spinning a web. I understand poetry when I watch something like this.
Take good care, friends. May the magic reveal itself to you in both subtle and splendid ways.
