Some days -- especially a day following what seems like weeks of rain -- we don’t want to come inside. The stretch between sunrise and sunset must be spent in open space with no ceiling overhead but the scaffold of bare winter branches against open sky. No floors to sweep, no carpet to vacuum, only the moss-covered pathways under our feet. The press of four walls cannot contain us on these days, not when loons are calling, and wood frogs, and goldfinches. Not when there are mushrooms to hunt, and hills to climb. Not when Mica-the-Magnificent feels the same way and whines every time we turn towards home. Some days are best spent outside, in fresh air, where grasses and dog fennel create sun-catching silhouettes and vultures glide in lazy circles overhead. We watch the sunset from our deck chairs, outside still, and wait to see stars, because here, along the base of the southern Blue Wall, electrical lights do not outshine stars. ~K
