To the one who knows how to look and feel,
every moment of this free wandering life
is an enchantment.
Some of my enchantments for this day, this week:
The ability to get through another round of chemo, even with all the side effects. Each day is a day further along!
Good nurses, doctors, and staff that closely monitor every level of my well-being and respond immediately and accordingly.
The sight of white clouds backlit by the morning sun.
The calm of a walk in the woods and along the marsh, smelling earth-smells and seeing herons, egrets, and tree swallows.
A smile from a stranger.
A good book at bedtime.
A hug from a friend.
Connections with friends, letting me know they're thinking of me, even when it's hard for me to reply in kind.
Being able to type, to knit, to read... to do chores, to drive, to get to work... the smell of fresh-cut grass, of the air after a rain... the sound of bird song at dusk...
to walk, to see, to hear, to feel.
