Today I took my runners off after my 10k run and just sat on the front step. I was sheltered from the wind. The sun was warming and generous. Leaves rustled on the trees that hadn’t yet shed their colours.
Last night I saw a friend for the first time in weeks. She asked how I was and I said that I was working on three pattern designs at once somehow and mockingly banged my head against her wall. She asked, “Where’s gracious? I love that you picked that word.”
Where’s gracious? That’s a good friend.
So today I sat in the sun with my shoes off. I let everything go out of focus for 2 minutes.
