most days i'm drawn to the woods. but on certain days like today, when all things align perfectly, i find myself longing for the open space of an endless field- the blue sky full of puffy clouds, the lack of humidity accompanying the early fall temperature, the constant gusts of wind, and then that glaring cool season sunlight. i love that low on the horizon sunlight, there's definitely something magical about fall and winter sunlight. the way everything seems to sparkle.
so today we headed into open space instead of the comfortable confinement of the forest. we traded rustling leaves for brown grasses and falling leaves for blowing milkweed.
most of all we just enjoyed the warm sun and blowing winds that only an open space can provide so perfectly.
