maybe its just me and everyone I know.  or maybe its human nature.   but I know that there are many times i’ve said or felt or smiled and sighed about when i am in indian cove.

and here we are.  we five are gone to the woods.  live, in paradise.  the sun is hot the shade is cool. the ocean is clear and very cold.

simple. good. gorgeous.

and stilll I have to pull my mind back to the here and now.

its innocent enough… watching the kids my thoughts wander to… o we should get a trampoline!  we could watch kijiji in botwood… or grand falls.  i should set up an account… and I’m off.  my mind is gone off with me.

but no.  I stop and feel the heat and hear the breeze and the loon. I am here.
