Today was a glorious day. We went hiking. Signs of new beginnings were everywhere. I collected pussy willows. Heard peeper frogs for the first time. Went back to the sound and saw the frogs, still and floating on the water. I saw scads of frog eggs, each with their own little moving eye. The first wildflowers were blooming. We even saw a butterfly. The first of the season.
I just wanted to breathe deeply of new life.
breathe so deeply that it was a part of me.
Nature begins again.
My daughter is not in the shelter anymore.
She's been saved.
Her knight is named Mike.
And so it begins again.
