  •  We had very similar weather. In a way, I'm glad; (2+ / 0-)

    there are times when the sun shouldn't shine, nor the birds sing and call across the yard to each other.  I noticed that our local crow was subdued today.  

    It's going to be an interesting weekend.  There are still things to think about with a perspective I had not had before.  I hope, at the end of it, to have a sense of acceptance and peace, that I can share with others who feel as I do, now.

    We'll see.

    Hugs, my friend,

      I forgot a detail.   The previous night (Thursday) I had stayed up all night playing euchre and had gone to school with no sleep.  That added to the surreality of the day.

      I love the imagery of the birds singing and calling across the yard and of the subdued crow.

        are times when that just seems to 'happen' with very little conscious input from me...and it always just feels "right".
