Scrap of a crescent moon is suspended against inky black sky. fifth day running for these rare Clear cloud light skies. The plumes of smoke from Icelandic volcanoes seem to be holding travelers hostage and Devon’s suspended in glorious sunny clear days.

And silent skies deafen as birds take up their songs again, undeterred by white noise in the background.

Another day passes. Slow waking from saddened heavy slumber. And yet, chickens get fed, cats spiral in on themselves, projects progress in their own haphazard and chaotic fashion, Logic of a higher source takes over, paperwork progresses barely scratching the surface… but the itch is slightly less as I piece together my life again.

Reinventing. Re-creating. Re-membering what perhaps I never knew. 

Returning to source illuminated enough by a scrap of a crescent moon.
