It was 27 degrees outside when I drove izze to school. Sunrise today was at 0759. False dawn played with the morning sky as our girl headed into class. Back home I took Maverick out for a morning walk down the old road to the A-Frame. It was windstill but even so leaves were silently detaching themselves from their branches and heading to towards the ground with silent determination. The wood readies itself for a winter’s sleep. Death and life flow together in the morning chill and possibilities always reign in the future!
My world grows a little smaller as more and more of my like aged friends pass. It is hard to argue with those facts and why should I. Fortunately I am surrounded by younger life and the duties that surround same. Contrary to some beliefs this does not keep one young… it does keep one involved and that may be even better.
My old friend Jack rolled into town and we started to play together today. It had been way too long for the obvious reasons but this interaction never gets old!
I shall weigh in again tomorrow.
