Finally. A real autumn sky, one with low yellow light. Light that peeks through the clouds and paints everything in front of it orange. One that turns the dusk sky dark blue, bordering on black. That’s what we saw on a late afternoon walk that turned into almost night. The all seeing dog was sleeping […]


To get here. Even though we haven’t physically gone anywhere, it feels like we have traveled forever. We are burned out from exhaustion. We are tired of the trail. We miss our friends. Our family.

The thermometer might have dropped as far as 85 degrees. It’s the big chill. We’ve put off doing any errands, even though the […]
