The sun is shining. So I am writing.

October 26th, 2014, 11am

The colors of the woods behind my house are magnificent. Today, it’s a mix of gray greens and hazy yellows, shots of orange dabbled on top, a hurried painter’s palette slopped over a nearly-finished canvas. It’s sunny. The light strikes through the heart of the trees, illuminating here and there a mélange of feelings I forgot had existed. Gnarled branches reach for heaven and soft leaves jiggle like jelly fish in the mid-day breeze. I can hear the pulse of a bulldozer, the strange mechanical noises of construction making their way towards my crop of nature, the chomp chomp chomping heralding an untimely death.
