It is healthy to step away from our usual places from time to time, finding a place to retreat and exhale. I breathe in a lot. And I hold my breath waiting for the next shoe to drop. I have been overdue for a change of setting.
For the next two weeks I am house sitting. Morning One: A patio on which to stand and drink some coffee, the overcast sky hinting at a cooler day. A flirtatious breeze dances by leaving behind traces of Autumn’s perfume.
A bird leaves its perch on the roof and flies into the distance. I wonder, do they know where they’re headed or do they make it up as they go along?
