The Gift of Every Day —- Sunday, October 2, 2022

“Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance”–Oprah Winfrey

Every day is a fairy tale

Sometimes I forget that—-so caught up in work, and routine, and ‘getting stuff done’

The bird migration is in full swing now

A resounding flapping of wings all through the night.

Although, one we can not truly hear or see

All the creatures large and tiny humming along

in preparation for (shudder) winter.

The sky’s colors are changing, the light different clearer, brighter

The shadows spread and dance, instead of laying heavy on the ground.

All around us is a frenzy of preparation–

Even Terry and I.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Beautiful photos, even those bee shots! Things seems to be moving quickly into fall. I ordered daffodils that should arrive this week. But fall is my favorite! Always something to do ~


  2. I’ve gotten so caught up in “busy” around here that I just seem to get behinder and behinder. How does that work? Sigh… Glad to finally catch up on all your beautiful posts. You are a great reminder to slow down and watch and listen. Thank you for always sharing your beauty.
