A New Perspective....

.....I have one.
It didn't take alcohol, drugs or sex.
All I needed was one night, sitting on the patio staring at the stars. And one morning sitting in the sun.
The fireflies are gone -no little lights among the large pine in front of the apartment. But the birds are many and sing in the morning, swinging the birdfeeder back and forth after the squirrel takes his breakfast.
I saw a House Finch this afternoon - his little russet brow shining in the sun.
I can see the sun's slant changing and feel the freshness of fall in the air.

I've changed my intentions.
I'm looking forward - with love for all the joy around me. I just forgot how to see it. I remembered this weekend.
