Leaves Falling


The leaves are falling, falling as if from far up,
as if orchards were dying high in space.
Each leaf falls as if it were motioning "no."

And tonight the heavy earth is falling
away from all other stars in the loneliness.

We're all falling. This hand here is falling.
And look at the other one. It's in them all.

And yet there is Someone, whose hands
infinitely calm, holding up all this falling. 

~Rainer Maria Rilke
Jane made this tablecloth, inspired by our friend Jewel.

Julia and Ben came to spend the most beautiful fall day of the year with us.

 We spent a joyous day at Elk Island Park. It's our new Waterton.
Bison everywhere.

 We fieldtripped it at Prairie Adventure Farm. It's really close to our house. It was fun to spend the day there with family.
 The magic show was ridiculous. I felt like a little kid. It totally blew my mind! Jane is helping the magician in the picture below.

 Cousins Hazel and Henry- one month apart.
