“How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank.
Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.
Did anyone notice the sliver of moon last night, with Venus right beside it, descending into the horizon together? That scene followed a beautiful sunset of oranges and pinks, jet trails colored by the light as their streaks glided much longer than normal into the sunset. Seems like whenever I see such a sight, I’m certain it is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like it. Gave me such a happier heart. Or maybe a lighter one. Most welcome.
Two days by myself have put some life back into my step. Been walking with both feet in front of each of other since yesterday and I can’t quite recall what had made them so heavy the other day. My husband and youngest son arrived last night and it was good to see them. So far today, we have done nothing, which is perhaps exactly what we needed to do.
The cold front blew in yesterday while I was reading in my hammock. Had shorts and a t-shirt on when I suddenly felt chilled. Last night, wrapped in a blanket and sitting on the dock, fish jumping, ducks floating quietly beside us, my husband and I watched the stars. I decided running away from home isn’t always such a bad thing.
