Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

coming from the west

what is it about late afternoon sunshine?
is it the slant of light, the angle of illumination, the glow?

i think it reminds me of the intersection of what i had planned for the day and what actually happened. 
a reconciliation of the hopes and the realities.

it creates a pool of right now. 
the present moment.
where there is no judgement.
just breath and breeze and respite.

a gift if i will simply recognize it.

amen.
