Be still and know!

As a new sun rises beyond the hills and river beyond my bedroom, the green tips of the maples dot the dark reaches below like sparkling yellow jewels waiting for the full sun. The rats of concern scurry in the dark reaches and I pluck them one by one and place them in order of priority. Minutes go by and the unfolding day yet to be ordered seems set.

  • Paul Sellers on As Boring Things Go…Not at all, and that wasn't really the overall point either.
