in these things, i am reminded..


for all the times i talk about what i do not take for granted there is many that i do and sometimes just being away for a few days can remind you  how incredibly well the small everyday things can feed and nourish you. today has been just that, whether it was when bringing in the wood early this morning and litghting the match against the cold air, or having tea in my own cup or how this music pouring out from the speakers made me stop and look out the window just when the horses began to trot or how when i opened the door was showered with big huge furry dogs who jump and rub and play and remind me that loneliness is but a second of fleeing weakness for they love as well as anyone or how in my inbox a well written letter makes you ponder and fills me with hope.

it is in the these everyday little things that i am reminded how big and beautiful my life is.

Dear Nadia,

Just returned from a long walk through the woods and thoughts of where I’d misplaced my gratitude. Days before, a trip to the coast; your beautifully chosen words rekindle thoughts of my homecomings…. Grateful for you, for this reminder of how simply wondrous and magical life can be.

Blessings, Stacy

Ps. Absolutely magnificent the way you match the music to your mood here.

So well said. Especially now during the busy holiday season which is actually supposed to be the time to stop and reflect.
