Like the geese, I was leaving too. I won't need to go as far south as these birds. Most of my "flock" is relatively close, physically or in my heart. And for that fact and those people, I am so grateful.
The sunset is enough. The sunset is always enough. But this evening, accompanying this beautiful and peaceful scene is the distinct and wonderful aroma of freshly cut hay.
