Feet Up --- Day 3/176

Walk: JCCSF, Laurel Village, Trader Joe's, Target, B&B Pet Supplies, Mollie Stone's
Distance: 3 miles and take yoga class

Ciwt loves that Monday feeling of completing errands and coming home to rest.  It would be nice to be able to do it as Wendell Berry does, among the wild things.  But home with Ciwt's deck door open is just fine for her today.

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

— Wendell Berry
