every moment.

Standard

after experiencing 

every kind of spring/fall/winter weather front

in the span of a single whirlwind of a day

there is  new light

in the early morning

with

a quiet dusting of snow on the ground

 clouds in the sky

streaks of blue

and

a moon hanging high

we’ll try again. 

‘every moment of light and dark is a miracle.’

-walt whitman

 

 

apricity.

Standard

apricity  – the warmth of the sun in the winter.

this term comes from the latin meaning “to bask in the sun.”

content.

Standard

while spending the better part of a morning

at the salon

and at the having my hair washed stage

a woman I’ve never met

hair in foil for highlights

wrapped in a black robe

walked up

and stood before me pointing

 then proclaiming,

to the entire salon:

“now here is a woman who is contented and relaxed,

taking 10 minutes, all for herself!”

something about my demeanor

must have given me away

for she was spot on.

“contentment is the only real wealth”
