I recently moved from a huge house to a small house. In an insane real estate market, my old house sold 4 times in 5 months. The heart palpitating ride landed and although I am not getting in line for another go-round, I am delighted I braved the one I was on.
Outside my window red tailed hawks glide high over pastureland, and the sunsets bring walkers daily. At night the heavens open to stars and moon, in a quiet world. Yesterday I walked by a thicket of trees that opened onto a perfectly framed Mt. Baker. Wild chamomile sprouted along the way.
In a few days I will travel to Brussels to reunite with my daughters. In the upcoming days I will begin to chronicle this adventure.

There was a literary rag named Clover
That got to be known all over
The fun that was had
Made the editors glad
And welcome your words, moreover.
