I did not intend to write today. Nevertheless, here I am. my walk was long. The air is sweet! So sweet I can hardly take it in. Too sweet for August…
I feel a bit guilty saying that because the reason is Harvey. My lovely air is a byproduct of the hurricane which is causing such disaster elsewhere. His rain will reach me soon enough. That’s why I walk longer today. If it comes in strong, the creek will flood. It will be hard to cross to our regular stomping ground. Then I will be faced with too many paws to count going stir crazy beneath my feet indoors!
But…today is lovely. The dogs are content and so at ease exploring the field and forest. Returning every few minutes to dutifully check on my whereabouts. Perhaps an exuberant acknowledgment that we were apart for sixty whole seconds! Yes yes I missed you too!
The air is unexpectedly cool. August has been an unexpected delight. I am touched by both. I guess… one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover or days by their month. One may miss so many lovely moments that way. I am humbled and grateful for such treasure. My prayers are with all who struggle on through this weather. Forward we go into September! May it be brilliant and bring you great joy!
