and the noise of the world became too much.
i needed to be alone.
i canceled my plans,
grabbed my rake,
and went outside.

could i becoming more of an introvert because i have the space now?

i ached for the solitude.

and got lost in the sound of the rake gathering the leaves.

wrapping breezes around my shoulders, the sky soaked over me,
the world slipped away, and i relaxed into the glory of my yard.

All three parts of your e-mail message this morning were amazing - your words have such a way of touching my soul and it saying . . . "yea, that's how I feel and what I've been trying to say!" Thank you terri.

i got it, margy. what happens is your comment needs to get 'approved' first and then it gets posted! i got the most horrid hate mail comment one day and decided to approve them from then on!! :) so if you guys don't see your comments up right away, that's how come! usually i'm close by and they go up fairly fast.....thank you always for leaving them!
