Just a Few Reasons I Love Life on the Diagonal

Bright meteor showers

Brilliant fall colors

Seas of valley fog with mountain tops peeking out like islands

Water tumbling over rocks in roadside creeks

Being able to live without curtains or blinds, waking up to the natural rhythms of light

Waterfalls

Cloud shadows drifting across the mountainsides, creating an ever-changing kaleidoscope of light and shadow

Magnificent displays of lightning with surround sound

Fog drifting in the house through open windows and doors

Wild blackberries, blueberries, elderberries, and strawberries

Raccoons, groundhogs, possums, skunks, chipmunks, bears, and bobcats

Toads with golden eyes

Making echoes

Quiet walks with time and room to think

Neighbors willing to help and willing to leave you alone

Ginseng, wild ginger, trillium, mayapples, jack-in-the-pulpits, ladyslippers, evening primrose

Slipping outside in the early morning to see dew-covered spiderwebs on fences, trees, and grass
