well with my soul.
It's fall! Today I woke up and it felt crisp outside. Woody felt it and he leaned hard into the breeze, snout lifted, nose twitching. He takes things in with his whole body. Storing that little detail for later, when I need the reminder to do the same. Yesterday I had lunch bunch with four of my students and one said, "Don't you wish the whole class was eating out here? So they could feel fall, too?" (For the record, yes, I absolutely did wish the whole class was out there.) My sister is in town and we got dinner last night, sangrias and all. We also got gelato and then sat on the couch and watched Parenthood together. Pure bliss and the perfect Friday night, if you ask me. Maybe it's the breeze or the crisp air. Maybe it's the fall leaves my students plastered with October goals and then decorated. Maybe it's all these things combined, but I feel the shift. The light is peeking through the cracks, seeping into the corners. I feel my entire soul finally looking up. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
