incredibly tired. Today Raylea came over for tea, and she
is so much fun. Then Steven took me for a long walk pushing
me in the rented wheelchair in the park. I drank in the fresh air,
the smell of clover -- which is all we smell out our windows in
Nova Scotia. In fact when we drive to Nova Scotia from
Toronto the fresh air smell starts in Moncton and just gets
stronger the closer we get to Pugwash. That part of the country
seems cleaner than Toronto, although we've had a pretty
great summer here.
It was a gorgeous day -- sunny with strange sun showers,
but Raylea and I sat looking at the sparkling leaves in
the afternoon sun for a few minutes, and Steven and I
sat down on some steps in the park (our park needs more
benches) and talked to doggers (people who have dogs)
as they strolled by calling sweetly to their canine companions,
"Roy, come here sweetie" , "Jasmine, leave the little girl alone!
Good doggie, want a cookie? There's a good girl."
Wide sky at sunsetI love the wide sky in the park -- it reminds me of the wide
views over the ocean. I'm not sad about Nova Scotia
at this point -- but I still yearn to be there.
Have a yearning happily day.
