i spent a good amount of time today raking
dried up holly leaves and pulling morning glory,
trying to work off the deep anger and resentment i was feeling.
overwhelmed, i paused and sat back on my heals at one point
and reminded myself that life changes constantly
and in a few hours or so i would be okay.
i sat and watched a chipmunk picking the seeds
out of pinecones and scurrying about so high up in the old pine tree,
i thought for sure he would fall, i noticed
Basil searching for a new place to burry his dinosaur,
which he held every so gently in his mouth,
and i understood we all have dilemmas.
we all have hurdles to get over and pain to bare in life.
suddenly, i found calm and was pretty stoked about how
good the path now looks under the holly trees.
