I am back from an evening walk with DLJ. We often walk in the evenings. Tonight was very summery…warm, beautiful evening sky. Nights like this almost hurt, I can remember them in New Jersey. The climate here is so close to Jersey, it’s almost the same. I can almost feel being a kid again, bones and muscles so new, the night air, the promise of a million things not yet done.
It’s a sort of sadness, to have so much done. So many questions answered. Who I married, where I live. Of course, the fates can always intervene and keep me guessing… but I miss the possibilities of summer nights as a kid.
But there are no lightning bugs here, which keeps the ache at bay.
