The frogs are chatting outside, some with their bodies pasted against my kitchen window waiting for insects drawn to the light inside my home. The moon is moving toward her full-out gorgeous phase, and I am puttering about this evening doing a bit of artwork and housework. The dogs are quiet.
In the morning I will venture out to inspect the makeshift lotus habitats I have created to see how the plants are faring. I am so enthralled with them, it is a bit like visiting favorite friends. Thus far I have been graced with one large white bloom and a small rose-colored one. And there are several more to come!
Speaking of visiting favorite friends…this evening I am making this last contribution to Elderwomen Musings. I will ever be grateful to Kathleen, Cate, and Donna for having me share this space with them. What an honor to be part of such a talented and passionate small crowd of friends!
And I am no less grateful to the women who have read these posts and to those who have made comments. Among those are Ernestine, Sharon, and Tabor, whose heartfelt remarks have always lifted me up. Thank you so much.
The frogs will chat, the insects will thrive, the moon will rise, and we women will continue to hold a vision of a planet, loved and cared for, and a world of humans able to love and care for one another.
It is a sweet dream and we shall bring it forth.
