I'm appreciating things like my old lunch break spot, that I hardly ever frequent anymore now that I've cut back on my daycare hours. A few weeks ago I realized it was still there for me, as forests usually are, and I've begun stopping in for a few minutes after work, here and there, before I hurry home and begin an afternoon of working from my desk.
As soon as my car rounds the turn into the dirt road, my body instantly feels at peace. The trees, the river, the birds that had become so familiar to me in my days of working up the street welcomed me back like I had never left.
I wanted to capture that stillness, to remember these days fondly even when I no longer frequented this space. And so I'm sharing it here with you.
