walking by woods.
when mr.a and i were first married, we lived near these woods. sometimes he would go off for hours; walking, exploring, just enjoying the silence. he needed that time. but i remember occasionally, as an insecure young bride, taking it personally that he would need this time away from me.
now i understand that he needed that time to breathe deeply, to be silent, and to return home refreshed.
today i walked just inside the edge of the woods.
the air was clear and cool. the woods were quiet.

after a long week meeting the demands of two little girls, i needed that moment alone. a moment to take a deep breath and be completely silent.
it would probably take a week in those woods for me to return home completely refreshed; but that brief walk was enough for today.
