Celebrating Distance

A certain quiet

fills the house and for a time

I breathe deep and slow,

cherishing each breath as it

comes and goes. It won’t

be long before chattering

girls return, bringing

with them a different kind of

joy, but for now I

celebrate having placed our

mailbox distant from the house.
