thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]
I <3 Lazy Saturdays!

Had a fantastic do-nothing day... though I didn't actually do nothing. I bought groceries and cleaned my room and sewed my shirt back together and did laundry and went to an enormous antique mall where i bought my dad his christmas present....talked on the phone for an hour and a half... found my wallet... and am about to go to see the one-act plays, and after THAT, i'm going to go play Avatar until I finally level.

And even with all that said, I'm still not tired. Despite the fact that that seems like a lot to have done in nine hours without any huge hurry...

This evening was the first time I drove home on 124 while it was still light out. The land was so beautiful in the sunset; I could feel it all around me, slowly drifting off to sleep, solid and sweet and full of promise. This week will probably be the last bit of our extended Indian summer before it really settles down to be cold, and the hills on the river bottoms and the early dusk struck a note deep inside me that I feel like I haven't heard since I was small. I started to remember when I loved America for her beauty, for her gentle kindness, for the serenity of the waters and the energy of the lands, for the for the millions of her children willing to die for her; when I loved her because she was my mother, back before we all were clinging to her in a desparate panic. Perhaps that note of post-summer light was a reminder that there has been peace, and there will be peace again.
