Late September morning light dances off dewy grass.
The sun creates dappled patterns through the trees.
Green and gold variations on an autumnal theme.
The hummingbirds have left on their southern journey.
It’s time to bring in their feeders and put out corn for squirrels … deer and crows.
Spider webs glisten and catch me unexpectedly as I walk into the new day with Teddy.
We stand together and breathe in the changing air.
He’s not as active now that his sisters are gone.
He’s okay with this.
And shows me by licking my calf and wagging his tail.
Chipmunks and squirrels are now safe in our yard.
Teddy loves to simply hang out.
Life right now is like a long letting go breath.
Finding a new rhythm, balance and some peace.
We are going to need it in the days ahead.
