And then there are days where the goals are not met, where what I say I would get accomplished falls short of the mark but the day couldn't be more sweet... I didn't get to the place I thought I would, not because the wind forced me back, the sun and heat was intolerable or the World needed repair. It was the people I met and talked to on the phone as the day wore on. I had walked to he top of a rise and found a tree to rest for a moment while I spoke with a woman on the phone of my travels and then with the husband and wife who owned the tree. Time did not matter when I was asked to stop in at the house by the bluff. The couple there thwarted my every excuse to press on for the rest of the day. I am waking in their yard this morning, a beautiful yard beneath the cliff and pines inhabited with three species of squirrel and dozens of birds that spend all day around the splendid flower and rock garden.
I will make no excuse or even describe more because, as I said, the day was really really sweet.
