just outside

through the window

past a favored spot

pitcher

I welcome the day

welcome
though my path may feel worn and rough
as the week moves forward
the birds still sing
the wind blows
just outside

Yes, it does all keep going on, doesn't it? Very lovely words and images. You're a teacher? That would be hard to give up your summer...I hope your year is rewarding.

I love the pitcher you show. My mom used to have that same pattern plates and stuff when I was growing up. I loved it, and wish I had her old set.

isn't it wonderful to have these constant reminders of well, constancy?... no matter how many potholes the road may have in it, there are some familiar things that still mark the path...
