It’s that time of year again. The large grove of aspen right outside of our bedroom window are at the height of their golden sunlit glory this afternoon. Did I mention we have over 30 trees in our backyard?
With the sun shining through them, they jump out at me, setting my eyes and mind ablaze with their pure radiance. They offer 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 springtime, magically turn green again!
