every day is a gift and every leaf a shining jewel
It might not look like autumn in the high desert, but oh, the subtle beauty of the season! The mornings start out cold and I wander the mesa bundled in layers. Canyon wrens sing and rabbits wander in the sage. By mid-day, the sun is shining, the air is warm, and my soul drinks in the light, the sound, the smell of this place I love.
But it's the late afternoon, when the hike is done, the light is golden, and we sit on the edge of the mesa, that I hear the canyons speak. And there are some secrets I dare not tell....
This place, this magical place....it grounds me. I am grateful to call it mine, to say I belong, to know a love like this.
Linking up with the awesome Chrisy down under at living a good north coast life and sharing a little of the natural world around us.
