On what was quickly turning into a sad & lonely evening,
instead of staying in and feeling sorry for myself
I decided to grab my camera and head outside.
What I found out there took my breath away:
a lovely chorus of crickets;
the warm glow of an orange sunset;
the peppery scent of marigolds;
a kind word from a stranger;
the rich smell of damp earth;
and hearts drawn on the sidewalk.
Once again I found my way back onto the path and felt renewed.
