To the lake

Tom and I walked down to the lake and sat watching ducks cavort near the shore.  We are both unaccountably sluggish today in mind and body and decided just to let things be as they are.  It doesn't matter.   It's a perfect October day, mild and sunny. Soon, a strong storm will come up and blow the leaves from the trees leaving skeletons in its wake.

Not today, though.  Today is serene.


  1. Deciding to "just let things be as they are" sounds wise and sage to me.

  2. This lake is in your neighborhood? Absolutely beautiful. I'd let things be as they are every single day.

  3. So beautiful. I live next to a soybean field. Next year it will be corn. No wonder I travel. Count your scenic blessings!
