We’re all on a journey, sometimes of our own making. Here’s the beginning of mine today. Bright change and possibility are right around that corner.

Change, fallow days, wondering. Autumn is slipping closer to winter, that hibernation of the soul, and so, a gentle walk along a country road reminds me of the exquisite connection between all things.

A little laughter after hearing the extent (and cost) of the dental work I need. My dentist lives in the boonies, which was good for me as it gave me time to return to a non-freaked out state. Funny, but not, at the same time.
