"An apple is an excellent thing, until you have tried a peach." George du Maurier (1834 — 1896)
I’m constantly grateful for the peace and the solace, and the small, quiet particulars of small-town living. I never saw anything like this coming for myself, and some days I don’t notice, but sometimes at night while looking at the stars I feel grateful for this unexpected turn of events and remind myself not to take any of it for granted.
For the most part, I feel awash in the gifts of everday living and I’m not sure what else a person can really ask for.
