The stand of aspen right outside of our bedroom window are at the height of their golden sunlit glory this afternoon.
These aspen form the perfect camouflage for my neighbor’s house, a natural fortification between us and the rest of the world.
We are safe in here.
Hidden behind this shelter of gold, we can pretend there are no others out there to spoil our lovely, isolated existence. We live in our own detached world, free of all things.
Please don’t let the leaves leave! I wish they could stay outside my bedroom window throughout the winter. And then in spring, they could magically turn green again!
