The golden path

The equinox has been and gone,

Which means it’s getting dark so early on in the evenings.

Goldenpath.jpg

We have to chase the light —

Or perhaps the light is chasing us.

(This is Simmie, who turned four this weekend.)

But when the sun comes out,

The woods are filled with gold.

  56. Oh that is so spectacular! I went to your personal links looking for where you are in Sweden. I wish i learned Swedish language too, so i can also translate into English, hehe. In my very short stint in Sweden, one month, i wished i had the opportunity to walk in the woods there, i just saw it while in the bus. I had however the opportunity to travel from Lund to Norkopping to Stockholm to Uppsala, with an international group which is wonderful and fun.
