Sunday Morning

In my room, the world is beyond my understanding;

But when I walk I see that it consists of three or four hills and a cloud.

  6. I just came back from a walk with my daughter, son-in-love, 27-month-old grandson and 1-week old granddaughter.

    This. 3 or 4 blocks (the curb is like a hill sometimes to a 2-year-old) and a cloud. Yes.

    Thank you for the heartbalm of this quote and photo.
