A morning walk after a rainy thundery night. This is about 6:00 in the morning. Choco thinks we need to start our walk earlier. Tetsu thinks we should start later (or not at all). I feel very blessed to be greeted with scenery like this just 5 minutes beyond my house and often think I couldn't have chosen a lovelier place to live.
The leaves are changing in my part of the world, the sun rises later and the mornings are getting colder. That's one reason Tetsu isn't so enthusiastic about getting out of the bed when the world is still a little grey. Each morning we look to the nearby mountains expecting to see snow but not quite yet. Winter is just around the corner!
"The grass withereth,
the flower fadeth;
but the word of our God shall stand for ever."
