i headed out in the early morning to go rake a little bit and to say
hello to the world.
as i walked to the shed, i looked up at the trees -
it was dark, but still some kinda light as i could see the
bare arms of the trees reaching out for the sky.
dark against dark.
first time this season i've seen that.
they're just now bare.
not even all of them.
but there they were.
even when i was really young i thought that was profound.
it has always moved me to see that.
it brings forth a whole buncha things inside me at once -
it's like a gigantic ball of different profound threads that just
rolls thru me and overtakes my insides....all from seeing bare
somehow it reminds me to be mindful,
and to try to stay calm and steady in the hard parts,
and to always reach for god.
i grabbed my rake and dug in,
thinking of all of that and saying good morning to the world.
not a bad start to the day.....
