Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain. Joseph Campbell

Today Father Sol shines down on you and me. Southern days, hot, heady, ready for what will be. Apples cooking on the stove, fried pies, apple butter, and fried homemade bread, the tastes of you and me fill our heads, with football games, and pumpkin pie, and we wonder yes you and I if life can get any better than this moment in time, where we walk by the lake, your hand in mine.

Joy as we see nature sing southern lullabies, as we love, yes you and I. – deborahmills, Southern lullabies © 2016
