Fall

I love this time of year, the dampness, the trees, the leaves. This year, the colors aren't as bright has they've been in years past. We had leaves one day, and after a few days of rain, a deep carpet of orange and yellow.


I am tearfull now, thinking of not being here next year. Maine isn't like this, the leaves aren't like this. And already, it's winter coat-time there. And all the while I am stuck in the in-betweeness of it all. Not quite here, not quite there. In-between and no where.


I grew up on a farm that had a creek running through it. Many hours were spent wading in it, throwing rocks. And now my children do it, the nephews do it. And that will change too. There is no creek where we are going, just a small frog pond. But I am sure there'll be lots of wading in it- for the boys anyway...

hugs- Lee

Hey sweet girl ~ I love fall!! I love everything about it...and once I took a trip to Maine to see a wonderful friend of mine. The trip was in late September and OMYGOODNESS!!! The leaves were absolutely so majestic, the rocky coast was gorgeous ~ I remember it like it was yesterday but it was 25 years ago. Don't worry sweet friend, when you arrive and make your new house a home, like only a woman can...you will love it!!! New memories are yet to be made ~ xxoo, Dawn

Maine will be different, not better - not worse - just different... but, it will become your new home and you will be happy there. I have the feeling that wherever you go you make friends easily and you kids will love the school system... Are you serious about a future workshop??? How cool would that be... xo Julie
