I've had to come to terms with a couple of things this week.
I'm going to share them with you, well, because I can finally share something
...anything....with you, more on that later.
First, leaves are my friends.
They provide shade during those dog days of summer, they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen,
they're very pretty, especially in October, and they cocoon this old farmhouse
turning it into a green and lush oasis
amid fields of corn (and every seven years soy bean).
Then November rolls around and they leave me.
Every stinking last one bids me adieu without so much as a glance over their shoulder.
I've never took issue with this before now, I figured they deserved their rest
and their replacements step up to the plate without issue each spring.
We know all that but this year, however, they took on a new job
and I would prefer they remained at their post for eternity
or as long as I'm around, whichever comes last.
Since that's not going to happen, and I have to share my view with Sunny and Ray,
I decided that perhaps it's not so bad after all.
There is plenty of sky for both of us to share in this two horse town.
My other epiphany?
Blogger is not perfect. Gasp! Insightful, aren't I?
Despite numerous attempts on various browsers, on a multitude of different computers
and in various cities, (yes, really) I was not able to upload a single photo into Blogger.
It was like having your view of the world more than slightly askew.
Sort of like a big giant rectangle smack dab in your view of the western sky!
I'm exploring my options but in the meantime, I'm just happy to be back.
And more than a little grateful to have a view at all.
~Be well friends!~
