reminding myself as we head towards winter


We're having an easy autumn so far.

Rain, yes, but not too much. Chilly, yes, but not too much. I can handle this.

Unlike the past few years, it hasn't snowed yet and so far it doesn't look like snow is on the horizon for us (thank goodness), unlike some other areas near us, this weekend. Just rain.

Right now true winter is a long way off.

And I am where I am, right now.

And I know this is the right place, for now.

And I know that I have within me an immense joy, even in the pain.

(Reminder to myself: March is the worst. And April, if it lingers. Make plans now.)
