While Clay’s Mom and older brother went to visit Clay’s grandpa on Labor Day, he and I decided to take a walk in a nearby nature center before the rain hit.
We went straight to a spot where you can look out on the reservoir, and sat for awhile, each lost in his own thoughts as another summer comes to an end.
After awhile Clay’s chant of “Gertrude McFuzz” grew in volume and the time for sitting was over. We headed back to our car. Near the end of the trail that leads to the parking lot, three deer ran across the field about 15 feet from us.
Later, his Mom asked if he enjoyed the trip.
“So fun,” Clay typed on the keyboard he uses to communicate.
“What did you like most?”
“So quiet we are at one with self so peaceful”
A great frame of mind for heading into the fall. Happy Labor Day, everyone.
