In the Woods

In the midst of the holiday hubbub I took a long walk in the woods behind my house


and I followed the light of the lowering sun


breathing in the cold pure air


the bare woods a soothing balm after all the flurry and feasting.


I feel held by the woods and go there often for solace and comfort



I sense someone there












and in the heart of the woods



I find her



and in finding her


I find myself.



A peaceful and reflective New Year's Eve to you all!
