I needed to be outside yesterday so I went for a drive north and west of town. I listened to the birds and felt the sun and fresh air as I drove along. At a river crossing I found this small stream. It felt good there. Quiet, peaceful, and slow. If you enlarge it the bushes in front take on an eerie, deathlike quality. In many ways it adds to the peace of the scene.
It's sunny here and the evenings are long. I know I should be writing, but our summers are short and should be enjoyed.
