Sunday Morning Reflections


I have, as it were, my own sun and moon and stars, and a little world all to myself.

~Henry David Thoreau

I have mostly stayed here in my house since March and Thoreau's words helped me remember that in addition to the dogs, there's a whole world right outside my front door: Ants, mice, ground squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, coyotes, ravens and hundreds of other birds and critters.

And the sun and moon and stars have been my companions here all these long months. 

So I am not alone, I am a small part of something: The sun and the moon and the stars. In my little world all to myself.
