seeking solace


in quiet

in the comforting presence of my husband, in his calm listening, in his straight-shooting perspective

in this home

in my kids’ sweet company

in a cup of something warm

in music

between pages

in the mountains

in the sort of hope that glows steadily, pushing back the dark with a gentle hand, promising that somehow, all shall be well

joining, at least for today,

in these daily prompts for November,

    it is so beautiful to find the solace amidst the every day. “in his straight-shooting perspective” – this speaks to me as my partner is also a straight shooter. sometimes it rubs me the wrong way, wanting to dance in the imagery or make things more than they are. i appreciate the view that it can be oh so comforting 🙂

      Thank you Lis! I can be halfway down the road with suppositions and energy- stealing wonderingly, and my husband kindly helps me restore my perspective. Thanks for commenting!
