Heading east again...

Woke up this morning to clearing skies.  Looks like we'll have a tail wind heading east - that usually bumps my gas mileage  up to about 23 mpg.  Not bad for one's house…

Skies are cleaning at 6 this morning...

I came across this poem which I wanted to share with you…I found it at the Poetry Foundation's website.

The Peace of Wild Things

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
