knee deep in weeds

notes on a simple life

what we ask of the world

“How do we become who we are in the world? We ask the world to teach us. But we have to ask with an open heart, with no idea what the answer will be.”
― Pam Houston, Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country

the dog and i slip out just as the light is fading
he heads off to sniff and do his evening rounds
while i follow the light, spellbound

with no agenda other than where it might take me
i allow the earth to open up my senses
and just like that, i am lost in her beauty
