I Know It

~ ~ ~
Been an interesting week.
Lots of quiet times.
Noise of a different type.

Life is just slower here.
Don't really know why.

I'm guessing due to no real things
that I have to do.
No appointments.
No times that have to be met.

Just the quiet of the water.
A Seagull here.
An Eagle there.
A Crane standing on the edge of the shore.
A Seal visiting the buoys.

Now, that's excitement.
I watch from the deck,
if the rains are gone.
From the kitchen window,
if it's too windy and cold.

Cars come and go.
Not a lot though.

Usually, I'm in my woods.
The road is way out there.
Here, it's just down the driveway.
It's the water part of the yard
that is so quiet.

Yesterday, I walked the beach.
Wasn't too cold or windy.
Looking for shells or anything cool 
to pick up for my windows.

Only a few people and dogs
running about on the sandy shores.

Going to rain for a few days.
So, inside I will be.
Just me and the Purr and Fur Gang.

I live a good life.
And, I know it.

Living a good life is a wonderful thing. Knowing that you do (as you said) makes it way more wonderful. Just as you like glimpses into my desert world, I love love love your visits to the sea.

I love the photo. You put into words my perfect day in a cabin near the water.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
