tuesday || day 199

We think that accomplishing things will complete us, when it is experiencing life that will.
~ Mark Nepo

i pick the raspberries and water the vegetables
in the cool of the morning, still in my pj's
i have eggs for breakfast and a bowl full
of ripe, red berries, with a bit of vanilla balsamic
i dress and head to a close by lake with the dog
we sit on a blanket and watch families swimming, 
a birthday celebration and kids on paddle boards
we both wade a bit, share an apple and
watch the leaves overhead play in the light

come evening i make an olive oil almond cake
with raspberries, writing this as it cools
I go where i shouldn't and . . . 
it takes my breath away
