Reflections of a yesterday....
The summer was hot and dry. Our drilled well almost ran dry in late July.
It was the driest summer yet.
My field crops suffered in the heat of the summer, we waited for rain.
It started out dreamy, but then the weeds came, the varmints followed.
I think I bit off more than I could chew.
So I chewed, and I chewed...
We pickled peppers.
We made grape jelly.
We went to farmer's markets.
I think to myself...
Within these reflections
I dared to peer around the corner of myself,
to get a glimpse of what I could be.
The light reflected off of
a truth so beautifully revealed
I forgave myself for existing.
