here was what I found:
- a fairy house in the woods
- a handful of wildflowers
- a pine bough
- meadow grass
- quiet beauty
- a heart-shaped stone
- stone steps to sit on and watch the river
what have your found that you are grateful for?

trying to find something to do
with the time
we have rushed through life
trying to save.”
