The clouds are breaking up and drifting off. A glimpse of the harvest moon may be possible tonight, after all. There’s more to be done, but for now I’ll enjoy the patio at Saxapahaw General Store. It’s a cool 70 degrees, there’s a buzz of people coming and going, and the buzz of conversations drifting together. It’s a snapshot of community from across the county.
In my hand is a tangerine wheat beer, on the speakers above is Van Morrison singing “Days Like This”.
“…When it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
When there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well my mama told me there’ll be days like this…” Van Morrison
And, the string lights above just came on. It may be time for a stroll down by the mighty Haw River.
Yeah, I love days like this. Well done, Monday. Well done indeed.
