Quick Getaway

There are spots, many of them, around this little farm, where I can go for a few minutes and recharge myself before returning to whatever task or duty or obligation is at hand.

This is one of them, a favorite among favorites, just a little island of quiet in the woods, a spot where the light makes magic and mischief at the same time.

A place where I can be alone . . .

until I become aware of the birds, the squirrels, the spiders in their elaborate webs,insects buzzing, a snake seeking someplace.else, more.

These woods, and even the most secret spots among them, contain multitudes, and I am honored to be among their number.

There is plenty of alone here for all of us.
