A little something for you to ponder.

“The most precipitous chapter of life always begins before we quite know it is under way.” ~ Ivan Doig, Worksong
(If you aren’t familiar with Ivan Doig’s writings, you’ll want to avail yourself of the privilege. He’s a master wordsmith able to leap large mountains with a single word.)
While walking this afternoon with Mom and Dad at the Riparian Preserve I snapped this photo of them.
At the time I didn’t think much of it. Just clicked the shutter and pocketed my phone. It wasn’t until hours later that I looked at it. Honestly it caught my breath. With dusk approaching and trees overhead the light framed this scene with a patina I find so appropriate.
Mom’s head inclined just so toward Dad says more than pages of words could ever achieve.
If you look really close you’ll see a bunny that allowed the two of them to get within mere feet to take its photo. Kind of magical, if you ask me.
I’m loving every moment I get to hang out with them. So glad they made the long drive to visit. I’m feeling loved, reassured and enveloped in a sort of peaceful bubble. I’m pretty sure it’s due to the presence of angels they surely have attending them. They definitely deserve that extra attention and care.
I love these two people beyond words.
