It’s a lovely Fall day in my little corner of the world. Musing mostly on being grateful rather than wantful, though material yearnings poke me when I click on those clever and incredible design blogs or watch HGTV while folding laundry…but still. I am completely content with my place in the world and although I know there are so many other lovely places to live, this place suits me. It isn’t a place of spectacular beauty, rather, it’s the lure of the coastal life that does me in every time. I grew up thinking it would be so magical to live close to a Great Lake or the ocean…and guess what? I’ve done both. If I’m quiet enough to consider my life, I see how so many of my dreams have come true.
It’s the weather that I love and the autumn through spring times that are absolutely delish here in this part of the Florida coast. People say we have no seasons here! So not true. It’s just that the changes are more subtle here. The light changes, the sea changes, the wind changes, the air changes.
It’s too lovely for studying in the house so I set up my camp on the front porch here and with the joys of wireless technology I’m able to study and relish this day with its sea breeziness and autumn skies and 83 degree day. Life on my front porch. It’s something to be grateful for!
