a nut, a seed, a source
the deck, the yard, the woods, the stream. outside on an autumn day. collecting, observing, clearing.
a time to wear hats.
and a time to pull hats off.
dismantling a tree that fell into our yard the winter before last. it has been a balance beam, a monkey bar, a bench, a scratching post for cats and a source of nutrition for woodpeckers. but today, it is a source of firewood.
reaching for temptations
even in autumn, a delicate unfurling
and in late afternoon, banana cranberry bread by blazing wood stove, hot chocolate, and a french press of local coffee, delightfully brewed with several cardamom seeds.
wishing you warmth, discovery, contemplation and flavor!
