Lots of things make me feel small but let’s start with Tim – and his friends.
We had a wonderful visit with Tim’s childhood friend and his wife. Lots of great conversation and laughs while we shared the island with them. But look at me! I’m a little person in the group.
The eagles may not be bigger than me but they carry themselves so well.
The sky dwarfs me. I’ve taken a new interest because we now have to provide twice a day weather reports in preparation for a burn later in the month. We have to estimate the cloud cover; make a subjective observation, objective. But if you hold your arms above your head and imagine the diameter of a circle, you can estimate the amount of cloud cover in your little world.
We also have to report whether or not there is fog.
One day had little cloud cover but lots of fog. Imagine that.
The seagulls look down on me from their perch on the roof.
Not only am I small, I am outnumbered: 80,000 birds to 1 human (really 2 if I include Tim).
This old tree knows how to stand alone.
These colors remind me of a sweater I have started.
Never a dull moment.
