"What saves a man is to take a step.
Then another step."
One step at a time.
The place so very familiar.
Yet full of wonder;
Each season, each day new glories revealed.
Like a dear friend.
Or a faithful partner.
Or our children.
The wonder in the known.
Discovering the new, the nuance;
As layers peel away in the comfort of trust
There's delight in each day's encounter.
The light shifts.
Some days we're so painfully aware of the shadows.
Some days the light dances
and the world is full,
Under the changing skies,
