Julie, I gather gratitude each day from your poems, especially not being able to do what I love. . When I recover from my back surgery, many of your passages will stream in my mind, when I am able to run again. Thank you for the inspiration.

Hi Howard, Thank you so much for sharing here and reading. I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts as you recover to get back to what you love. Don't give up! One step at a time...

"What will you delight in today?" - now that's a proper question to ask the soul each morning...

Your poem delights me

You have engaged my senses

My soul is smiling...

Thanks Julia. One of your best. I will come back to it often as the approaching Winter Solstice reminds me how much I miss the Summer. Look forward to “hearing” the snow “crunch” beneath your “Brooks” (?) as the snow flakes “dazzle” your eyes and Bambi gracefully moves through frigid December. Vivaldi, O’Keeffe , Van Gogh and Mary Oliver capture it “All” and are my Souls constant delight. Thank you Jules for your daily gifts of words that paint, sing and speak to my Soul as well.

My soul is smiling back. Thank you so much Clark for your note here. It makes my day to engage with you all here. It truly is a joy to share our words together.

Oh yes, snow will be crunching soon under my Brooks. How about you? I alternate between ghost and glycerin. Have a fantastic day.

Finally found a running shoe that is just “right” for me: Brooks Ghost 15. My “Goldilocks”.
