Toadstools, salamanders, and fallen leaves. So many hidden treasures today, deep in the October woods. Rafael has been in the forest with my every day since he was a tiny baby and is very patient when I stop the stroller to search the sides of the path for mushrooms and such.
It was a clear blue sunny day, but on the evening walk with the dogs the wind was sharp and cold, restlessly swirling leaves up into the air. It gets dark early now, and we walk down the quiet village streets as lights go on in the windows of the houses we pass. It's a funny feeling, walking down the still dark road, while there are conversations being had and dinners being made inside the warmth of the homes.
Thank you, as always, for joining me here, and for leaving such kind notes.
