Today was a gorgeous, late August day. I just had to write about it. Even the morning went seamlessly– little traffic, easy parking, and a few extra minutes to spare… in the morning!
As I write this, the Moon and Mars are ascending in the eastern sky above me. This evening brings cooler air hinting at change. Summer is waning, but I am warm under magnificent light.
I am sitting on the patio taking in the evening.
Dappled sunlight filters through brilliant, green leaves.
The sky ripens, colors soften, synchronize with my breath.
A menthol-like sensation from the twilight breeze caresses my skin and I shiver.
I feel it.
I feel it again.
The healing glow from the waxing moon quiets my thoughts and I breathe a little deeper.

This song is dedicated to someone who was very special to me. I recently learned of his tragic death due to a scuba diving accident. His sense of adventure and love for life were unsurpassed.
Rest in peace, Kerry
